Jesus, Our Greatest Need

Some people try to excuse their unbelief by claiming that they have no need for Jesus. Today, R.C. Sproul reminds us that there is no greater need in this life or the next than our need for redemption in Christ.

Now, how many times have you heard it? I don’t know. I’ve heard it hundreds of times, where people have said to me, “Religion may be good for you, and going to church and all that’s fine if you get something out of it. But I don’t feel the need for Jesus.” You don’t feel the need for Jesus? Is your heart that hard? Don’t you realize that there’s nothing on this earth that you need more desperately than you need Jesus? What else can satisfy your need except Jesus?

And I say to people, “What do you do with your sin? What do you do with your guilt?” I’ve said that I don’t know how many times to people. “What do you do with your guilt?” I’ve yet to have somebody say to me, “I don’t have any guilt. I don’t have any sins.” Every impenitent sinner on this planet, even sociopaths, know that they have guilt, and they know that they have sin. And if you are a human being and you know that you have sin, how can you be so foolish as to think you don’t need Jesus? Because no one else can fix your problem.
