If you need a Savior

Blessed are you if you know you need a savior.

Blessed are the guilt-stricken, the needy, the addicted, the betrayed, the crushed, the unable, the sick, the poor…

If you need the Savior, then you shall have Him.

  1. Yes, and…
    While we were yet sinners — not knowing or wanting a savior, denying any need for such, disdaining God and His Son, flipping-off God and His claim of sovereignty in our lives —
    yes, even right at that point, He died on our behalf, to save us.
    No one knows she/he needs a savior, probably, until after they realize they’re saved.
    I think, also, one can be guilt-stricken, needy, addicted, betrayed, etc. and still flip-off the salvation provided.
    “Blessed are those who know they need a savior,” because their savior has illuminated them to that situation.
    “If you need a savior, then you shall have him,” because He already fulfilled that need.
    Doesn’t the guilt, neediness, inability, poverty, shattered-ness become more intense once it’s illuminated by the light of Redemption?

    Watch out when you get my theological juices going! I get preachy. Then the guilt, inability, and poverty of my spirit shatter me. I think Jesus was talking about all this when He said, Blessed are those who mourn. Sorrow covers everything.
