SAVIOR

"And we know that this man really is

the Savior of the world."

John 4:42

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, it was for you I died—you and the whole world. I came to rescue the ones lost in their own world of suffering and meaningless confusion. I came to open blind eyes, long closed to the truth. I came to open the gates of prisoners whose hearts were hardened by hatred. I am the Savior of the world, and whoever believes in Me for their salvation will never die. But I am also your personal Savior, continually freeing you from strongholds that threaten our fellowship.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Lord, You walked into my prison of darkness and broke the chains that had bound me for years. You are not just my Savior. You have released prisoners from fear and shame for centuries. All power and might belong to You—my Savior, God, redeemer, and friend.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Who in their right mind would want to reenter prison after tasting freedom?
