Who Saves? (John 1:15-51)

He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, “ I am not the Christ.”

“Jesus Saves is what it raves in a typical tattoo green!” So goes the line from DC Talk’s iconic Jesus Freak title track song from their 1995 album of the same name. And it’s true, Jesus is the one who saves.

Are you the kind of person who wants to be someone’s savior? Are you trying to fix someone else’s problems? As Believers, we are witnesses to the savior, we aren’t the savior ourselves. You can’t make someone turn their life around, only God can change hearts. As much as we want to force our children, our spouse, a friend, to “clean up their act,” to “get it together,” and “get back in church” Jesus (not you or me) saves. They have to come to the place where they realize that Jesus is the answer. Many people do need to clean up their act. Tons of people do need to get it together, and there are scores of people ready to help you and give you a home in church… at the end of the day, if you don’t have Jesus, it isn’t going to mean anything.

If you don’t know Jesus, trust him.

If you want to help people, introduce them.
