Why We All Need Jesus Christ

Posted by Efoghor Joseph Ezie on 5/22/2010 01:50:00 PM

Sin reduced man far below the level God placed him at the beginning and separated him from his maker, therefore making it impossible for him to realize his full potential and enjoy all the promises God made for him. Man therefore needs Jesus Christ to help him out of his predicament since he cannot help himself no matter how much he tries to.

We Need Jesus Christ To Deliver Us Because Of The Following:
1.We are all living in Sin: The word of God makes us realize that everybody is living in Sin and that there is no righteous man (Romans 3:10; Psalm 4:2-3). To further show that the state of Sinfulness of man is deep-rooted, the word of God says that man is conceived in Sin, meaning that man is already a Sinner before birth (Psalm 51:5). It is therefore impossible for anyone to boldly hit his hand on his heart and declare “I am not a Sinner because I do not do anything wrong.” We are already contaminated from birth: so we are not exempted because of our moral works.

2.Our hearts are desperate and wicked: our hearts cannot think anything good or produce anything that can please God because it desperate and wicked. Nothing good comes out of a wicked heart (Gen. 6:5; Jer. 17:9; Matt 15:18-20). We therefore need somebody who can help re-align our hearts so they could think positively and produce something good. Only Jesus Christ has the power to do that for us.

3.We are condemned to death: a condemned prisoner has no power to grant himself amnesty; he needs one in position of authority to grant him that freedom. Sin came into the world through Adam and spread to his offspring. Neither Adam nor his offspring had the power to set themselves free from the condemnation that sin brought. Only Jesus is able to deliver man from his condemned status (Romans 5:12, Romans 5:15-18; I Cor. 15:22). Only in Christ Jesus can man find life which he lost as a result of Sin.

4.Only Christ is qualified to save us: man’s freedom does not come through political intervention; it comes through atonement of Christ’s righteous blood. No other one or means is good enough to cleanse man from his sin except the blood of the sinless Christ. Only his blood is pure enough to be accepted by God in order to declare man free from his sin. The blood of goats and bulls could not entirely take away the sin of man. (2Cor. 5:21; Heb 4:5, 1 Peter 2:22, 1 John).

5.He takes away the sins of the world: the only person God recognizes as one who takes away the sins of the world is Jesus Christ (John 1:29; I John 2:2). This was revealed to John the Baptist through the Holy Spirit. Besides Christ no one else is recognized to take away the sin of man. We therefore need Christ because we are filthy before God. When we allow him a place in our life he will take away our sins and present us pure and whole before God.
