My Saviour, Your Saviour

1 John 4:14 We have seen that the Father sent his Son to be the Saviour of the world, and this is what we tell people.

Christians use so much jargon. Sin, salvation, Messiah, Saviour. Seriously? I wonder how many people who use those words truly, truly, in their heart of hearts, understand what they mean – especially that word, Saviour.

We all know that life has its ups and downs. We know that. But deep down, we always kind of expect that, for us at least, it should mostly be ups. Those downs … truly, they’re for other people, right?

But life’s not like that. Sometimes we’re hit by a huge storm. Other times it’s an accumulation of little things that get you down, one after the other. You can’t really point to any one thing in particular, but you just feel like you’re drowning.

Have you ever felt that? It doesn’t make sense, but there you have it. It happens.

I used to wonder why they referred to Jesus as “Saviour”. What an odd term, it seemed to me … until I was drowning. Now you have to understand, I’m a pretty “together” kind of guy, by and large. But like all of us, I came to a point, quite a few years ago now, where I just couldn’t keep going.

And it was right in the middle of that, that I understood what that “Saviour” thing was actually all about. Because when I reached out to Jesus out of sheer desperation, when I had nowhere else to turn, He was there.

1 John 4:14 We have seen that the Father sent his Son to be the Saviour of the world, and this is what we tell people.

This term “Saviour” isn’t just a religious term. It’s not mere theory or theology. It’s real. Very real. So wherever you find yourself right at the moment, reach out to Him. He is here.

Jesus. My Saviour. Your Saviour.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
