In speaking of the need for salvation, award winning author Steven James makes an interesting statement. “If I believe our world is a pretty good place and we are pretty good people, then we just need a Savior to get us over the hump. But we believe and confess that we are desperately fallen people in need of a very big Savior.”
That expresses our need very well. If some of us are more moral, or more upright than most, it is only by small degrees. We are all in need of a very big Savior because we have fallen very short of God’s design for us.--Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell.
