"Savior" - his redemptive work
Perhaps the only thing more difficult than convincing people of Jesus’ resurrection in this age of “enlightenment” and materialism, is convincing people—who have been told for years that they are basically good and just need to love themselves more—that they are sinners in need of a Savior.
But if you see that you are selfish, empty, and guilty before the perfect law of God (remember the Ten Commandments?), then Jesus is the only qualified Savior. He is God’s Son, and He came to earth in order to die for sinners: “while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). His resurrection is confirmation that He conquered sin and death for our sakes.
If you are sincerely searching for the answer to the question “Who is Jesus?”, then the answer is simply this:
He is the Savior of sinners. He is Life for the dead. He is Hope for the hopeless. He is Joy for the mournful. He is Strength for the weak.
Jesus said… “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?” (John 11:25, 26).
