God sees the human race’s need for salvation


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Daily Times If God didn’t so love the world that He was willing to give His Only Begotten Son as a living sacrifice for the sins of the human race then none of us would stand a chance of forgiveness and eternal salvation. The human race found itself in need of that forgiveness because of its fall from grace when it stopped trusting God and began believing the lies of the Serpent. Had God been a truly vengeful being He would have either destroyed the human race outright or simply left it to fend for itself and, in either instance, suffer the eternal consequences of its faithlessness. Instead, God, while certainly knowing the cause of the human condition, chose to concentrate on humanity’s need for forgiveness, for redemption, for a savior. That is why, from the time after humanity’s fall, He has worked to provide His wayward children with a path back to Him, a process that began in the Old Testament with the Hebrew patriarchs and prophets and culminating in the birth, life, ministry, death, resurrection, and ascension of His Son Jesus Christ. With Christ, a path to salvation was created that went beyond the Israelites, God’s Chosen people, to reach out to the entire human race. That path of salvation continues to be offered to this day through the Holy Spirit, the word of the Bible, and the witness and testimony of those who have accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior, a family of faith that extends back to Christ’s disciples and the rest of the first Christians. God knew the cause but concentrated on the need and He continues to do so to this day. The question is, do you see the need and, if you, will you let Jesus address it?
