Look Up and Be Saved – Episode 26



We walk through this world with our eyes toward the ground – looking down, down at our feet. Maybe there is a practical reason for this. Maybe it is so we will not trip. Or we want to focus on where we are walking.

But occasionally something happens. Something just out of our field of view occurs that causes us to look up. A sunset. A clap of thunder. Or better yet, something we cannot explain. Something supernatural, something miraculous.

Today, we begin a journey, a quest. This quest is to understand the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Our theme verse for this journey is 2 Corinthians 4:6.

“For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”

So how does this quest begin? It begins by looking up. Taking our eyes off of the now, off of the everyday, the mundane, and looking at the amazing glory of Christ.

Takeaway

Your takeaway is: When Jesus reveals His glory, people are saved.

John 2:1-5

Signs

Signs point to something beyond themselves. A road sign tells you that a town is 10 miles ahead. The signs recorded in this gospel point the reader to the glory of Jesus.

Relationship

So what is happening here with the term “woman”? We are witnessing a change in the relationship between Mary and Jesus.

Jesus is at the beginning His ministry – and with that, Mary is no longer “mom.” Mary is just another woman. Now Mary must relate to Jesus differently. The relationship of mom to son has changed to sinner to Savior.

Regardless of what you may have heard, Mary is a sinner – Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Mary is a sinner in need of a Savior. Mary needs to trust on Jesus Christ and ask Him to forgive her.

Jesus Saves

John 2:6-11

When Jesus reveals His glory, people are saved.

Jesus does save the newlyweds from embarrassment. But being saved from embarrassment does not save someone from sin.

Closing Thoughts

Jesus left His home in heaven. He walked among us. Jesus witnessed the sin and depravity of mankind. Jesus knew that we are not able to save ourselves. So He died on the cross for our sin.

Listeners, you need to believe on Jesus Christ. Admit that you are a sinner. Believe that Jesus died for your sin. And call on Him to save you.
