“If our greatest need had been information, God would have sent an educator.
If our greatest need had been technology, God would have sent us a scientist.
If our greatest need had been money, God would have sent us an economist.
But since our greatest need as forgiveness, God sent us a Savior.”

I think of how many times I talk with others and get stuck on the topics of information (not enough) or money, or anything else really. I forget that it would be so much easier to boil tihis down to the main thing. Forgiveness.
I know how much of a difference forgiveness has made in my life, and how a continued renewing of that understanding continues to change me. I forget how much it really means to others. Thank you for ths wonderful reminder of the reason for Jesus appearance here, and how it is relevant to everyone.
I thank you for seading this and I thank ELOHIM for seading us the best
gift ever YESHUA(JESUS) to die for us andTo forgive are sins, thank you my LORD for your love and forgiveness,AMEN
Right on mate…
I can’t help but think that sometimes we misinterpret what our needs really are…thankfully we have a God who knows what’s going on! Thanks for sharing this with us.
[insert obligatory plea for you to come out to Australia here]
Isn’t it awesome how He knows just what we need???!!!
There you go, messing with my comfort zone again, although that series of tweets you RTd a couple of days ago really messed with me.
What we need is Jesus, like your song says, and it says it very well if I might add. I’ve been praying for you today. Blessings, Tess
Christ was actually all of these things…
“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
Todd, I was at your concert in Fort McMurray…you mentioned a couple of people you are listening to on podcast…could you mention there names again…if they challenge me and spur me on to good works anything like you did than it would be worth listening to.
Solomon, the two I mentioned were Matt Chandler of the Village Church and Greg Pinkner of Fellowship Church in Knoxville. You can find Greg’s sermons by going to iTunes and searching “Crossroad Knoxville” which is his weekly talk to college kids but anyone would benefit from it. Or search “Fellowship Knoxville” and you will find their main Sunday service which he preaches some of the time. You can find Matt Chandler by searching “Village Church” or “Matt Chandler”. Hope that helps.
Most of us would say we need forgiveness daily. The rest are lying.
I became a follower of Christ at age 23. Years of living for God, sometimes struggling, sometimes doing well, but always feeling like a loser when I mess up. It never ceases to amaze me how selfish I am. Whenever I have a conflict, I eventually come back to that thought, then have to give up my rights… just as Jesus gave up His rights.
As the years roll by, some things get easier, but what grows more and more is my desire to be absent from the world, to shrug off this body of sin and death, and be present with Christ, where my salvation will be complete.
