Do You Know What I Know?

“Do You Know What I Know?” … we need a Savior!

I Know I Need a Savior!
Salvation Has Appeared

Scripture Reading: Romans 3:21-26

Key Verse: Titus 2:11

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.

This month we will be thinking about Christmas. The retail stores have been alluring us to “think” Christmas and buy for Christmas for a long time. In the church we fight the uphill battle of keeping our minds (and our children’s minds) on Christmas according to the Bible. Most of us have heard and sung the Christmas song, “Do You Know What I Know?” I would like to use that title to guide our thinking this Christmas season.

The first thing I know that everyone should know is: We need a Savior. Our scripture in Titus sums up our Christmas theme: “The grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.” When Jesus came as a baby, shepherds and wise men made their way to get a closer glimpse of what had appeared. Wouldn’t it be great if everybody in our world would take time to get a closer glimpse of our Savior? Would some still reject Him? Yes, unfortunately some would walk away from “what has appeared.” But many, if they dedicated the time to get close to the true revelation, would be captivated by Him. One true glimpse of the purity and holy character of Jesus, and we all will know we need a Savior!

The Apostle Paul wrote, in our scripture reading section, that “all have fallen short of the glory of God.” No one is righteous, no not one. Do you know what I know? I know I need a Savior. How about you?

Father, thank you for looking beyond my faults and seeing my need. Thank you for sending Jesus to be my Savior. It’s in Jesus’ Name I pray, amen.
