If, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. (Rom 5:10)

Jesus Christ is God’s answer to every human need. In every dealing with us, God works by taking us out of the way and substituting his son, Jesus, in our place. Jesus died instead of us for our forgiveness. Jesus lives instead of us for our deliverance.
We can speak of two substitutions: a Substitute on the Cross who secures our forgiveness and a Substitute within who secures our victory.

God will answer all our questions in one way only, by showing us more of His Son. Jesus really is the answer!

I always hear people talk of what they will ask God when they get to heaven. Why did my baby die? Why did my Mom die so young? Why did my dad abuse me? Why did this accident happen that left me disabled? Why have I been unable to find work? Why does my husband treat me this way?

Every question will be answered by showing us more of Jesus Christ. Our life is all about the Son of God! So shouldn’t we be seeking the Son in every situation we face?

As Paul wrote: O to know Him! That is why Paul was always seeking the “excellency of the knowledge of Jesus Christ”!

We shall be saved from this world by His Life!

He is our Bread!
He is our Water!
He is our Light!
