Y'all Need Jesus


Y’all Need Jesus… to take our condemnation (guilt) 3.19.23 (English)

Pastor Joe Dietrich
The Lion tears the unrepentant to pieces and returns to His lair until his people repent and seek His face. When they do, He will not disappoint them. He will bind up their wounds and revive them with the peace of forgiveness. The gospel reading reminds us of the completely strange way that Jesus would take our guilt away. He would take it upon Himself, not coming to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. The Psalm offers us a beautiful picture of why we long for God like a deer pants for water. We desperately need Him! In our text from Romans, we see that Y’all need Jesus to take away our condemnation. And the awesome news is true – that in Christ Jesus there is no condemnation. We are set free, no longer slaves to sin and death, no longer living in guilt, having a mind that is governed by the Spirit instead of the flesh.

Y'all Need Jesus

Y’all need Jesus! Oftentimes it’s a shout when someone is doing something wrong. Very wrong. Publicly wrong. Crazy wrong. Y’all need Jesus! We’re in the season of Lent now, and this theme absolutely works. It’s a time to see our sins in all their ugliness. It’s a time for a call to repentance, a call to recognize just how bad we are, how far we’ve fallen, how badly and how often we’ve failed. There is no possible way we are deserving anything good from God or saving ourselves. We need Jesus… so much, in every way. We needed Him to be everything we’re not, to do everything we couldn’t, to succeed where we’ve failed over and over and over again. He is the Savior we needed with a desperation that we can’t even begin to put into words. He’s all we need, all we’ve ever needed. And He was, is, and always will be everything we need.
