Jesus is my Savior. Webster says a Savior is Someone who saves- The Savior Christ. First, you have to believe that Christ is the Son of God come down from Heaven and that He died on the cross for the sins of the whole world and rose again on the 3rd day, ascended into Heaven and is sitting on the right of the Father interceding daily for us. Saved from what, “A life of sin and shame”; also, Hell and damnation. KJV 1 John 1:8-10 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9) If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10) If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. KJV Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. 1John 3:5 And ye know that He was manifested to take away our sins; and in Him is no sin. Isaiah 53:5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed. Jesus was not a sinner but God caused Him to take upon Himself all our sin. This was necessary so that the ministry of reconciliation could take place. If Jesus had not taken on our sinful condition, the wrongs we have done could never have been made right. If you believe there is evil you have to believe there is good. If there is a Devil there has to be a God. KJV 1Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the Devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour; Ephesians 6:11 Put on the whole Armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. We are warned to be sober, not intoxicated, vigilant, suspicious and watchful of constant danger from this spiritual enemy. The whole Armor of God is the Believers protection against evil. Wiles of the devil are subtle tricks to defeat Christians in spiritual warfare. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. SIN, it all started in the Garden of Eden. Genesis 1:26 And God said let us make man in Our Image. Our referring to the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Gen 1:27 So God created man is his Own Image; male and female.. Gen 1:28 And God blessed them and God said unto them, be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth and subdue it… Gen 1:31 And God saw everything that He had made and behold, it was very good. Gen 2:7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul. Gen 2:8 And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden and there He put the man who He had formed. Gen 2:16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat; Gen 2:17 But of the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, thou shalt not eat of it, for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. Gen 2:18 And God said, It is not good that man should be alone, I will make him and help mete for him. Gen 2:21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he slept: and He took one of his ribs…Gen 2:22 And the rib , which the Lord God had taken from man, made He a woman and brought her unto the man. Gen 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtile than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? Gen 3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden. Gen 3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the Garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. Gen 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: Gen 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. Gen 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food and that it was pleasant to the eyes and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof and did eat and gave also to her husband with her and he did eat. Gen 3:7 And the eyes of them both wee opened, and they knew that they were naked…..Gen 3:8 And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day and Adam and his wife hid themselves…..Gen 3:9 And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? Gen 3:10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden and I was afraid because I was naked, and I hid myself. Gen 3:11 And He said, Who told thee that thou was naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? Gen 3:12 And the Lord God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me and I did eat. Gen 3: 14 And the Lord God said unto the serpent, because thou hast done this, thou art cursed….upon thy belly thou shalt go and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life. Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head and thou shalt bruise His heel. (Romans 16:20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.) When Jesus went to the cross, He was bruised in His heel. In His resurrection, He defeated His enemy. From that moment on, Satan has lived on borrowed time. He is already defeated. Gen 3:16 Unto the woman, He said, I will greatly multiply thou sorrow and thy conception, in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband and he shall rule over thee. Gen 3:17 And unto Adam He said, Because thou hast harkened unto the voice of thy wife and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life. Gen 3:18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; Gen 3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. Gen 3:22 And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil; and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever; (To eat of this tree was to live forever. It was in vain for Adam and his to expect righteousness, life, and happiness, by the covenant of works; for the command of that covenant had been broken, the curse of it is in full force, we are all undone if we are judged by the covenant.) Gen3:23 Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
But because of Jesus:
Romans 5: 1-11
1) Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
2) By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
3) And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulations worketh patience;
4) And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
5) And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
6) For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
7) For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
8) But God commndeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
9) Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
10) For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.
11)And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received atonement.
Jesus is Our Savior. Amen.
