Every Need We Have, He Supplies

But we are not without a Savior, Jesus Christ has come.  And he is a great Savior.  Every need we have, he supplies.  And his death on the cross is the price that purchases every gift that leads to deep and lasting joy.

  • Is there wrath and curse hanging over us? (Galatians 3:13)
  • Is there condemnation against us in the courtroom of heaven? (Romans 8:33-34)
  • Are there innumerable trespasses mounting up against us? (Ephesians 1:7)
  • Is righteousness required that we cannot produce? (II Corinthians 5:21; Romans 5:19)
  • Are we cut off from eternal life? (John 3:16)
  • Are we trapped in the dominion of sin that ruins our lives? (I Peter 2:24; II Corinthians 5:15)
  • Will all the follies and failures of our past drag us down with irrevocable, destructive consequences?  (Romans 8:28)
  • Have we lost all the good things God planned for his Children? (Romans 8:32)
  • Is there any hope that sinners like us could spend an all-satisfying eternity with God?  Can I ever come home to God? (I Peter 3:18)
