Start Your Week Fear Free

Encouragement for your daily walk with God 

We needed a perfect Savior and we got Him. His name is Jesus. He had to be human as we needed a Savior who could submit Himself to, and fulfill the Law of God perfectly. He had to be human so that He could experience death for each of us. And Jesus, sharing in our humanity, did just that.

But we also needed more than a mere “earthling” to be the perfect Savior; we needed one who is truly God. That perfect Savior must suffer a death that would count for all people. Jesus did that just as John said, “He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. [1 John 2:2]. Not only that, but a mere man could not overcome death, but God certainly can, and DID! Jesus did overcome death because He was “very God of very God.”

And one final thing; we needed a Savior who could defeat the very powers of evil. Our precious Jesus did that too. John wrote, “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil [1 John 3:8b]. He is the true God who destroyed Satan and his death grip on us.
Today starts a new week. Live today, and every day, without fear of sin, death or evil.  Jesus, your perfect Savior, has freed you from their power.

Since the children have flesh and blood, He too shared in their humanity so that by His death He might destroy him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil—and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. Hebrews 2:14-15
