And they told the woman, “We no longer believe because of what you said, since we have heard for ourselves and know that this really is the Savior of the world.” John 4:42
Jesus is the Savior.
Who can be saved?
He is the Savior of the world.
Not just Israel. Gentiles too.
Not just the righteous but sinners.
The unworthy. The hopeless. The powerless.
Saved from what?
The wrath and judgment of God for starters.
That’s amazing, no doubt.
But there’s more.
Jesus saves us from the penalty of sin.
We won’t receive the punishment we deserve
For our transgressions against the Holy God.
Jesus saves us from the power of sin.
We can overcome temptation
Through the Holy Spirit’s power.
Jesus saves us from the presence of sin.
We will spend eternity in the presence of Christ Himself.
There will be nothing unholy or unclean there.
We can say with the hymnwriter
Hallelujah! What a Savior!
