9. When we first come into this world, we are extremely dependent on others. 10. We need parents or other providers to feed and clean up after ourselves. 11. Even as small children, we sense our need for parental care and protection. 12. 2nd Point When We Are Young & Get Matured. 13. As we get older, it is common to believe that we no longer need anyone or anything. 14. Starting in adulthood, where many think they no longer need their parents 15. Often continuing throughout adulthood, where many think they can take care of themselves when one starts working , get married & have children. 16. 3rd Point When in The Life Above Will We Find Eternal Life. 17. Mankind is not as self-sufficient as many would like to believe. 18. We are extremely dependent on many things despite our denials. 19. Which I intend to illustrate in this series of lessons ("Why We Need.......")Created by Bro, Ritesh Gowder
20. Why Do We Need GOD?

  • Assuming that one believes in GOD (see "Why I Believe in GOD"), let's begin with three simple yet significant reasons why we need GOD in our lives.

21. HE IS OUR CREATOR. 22. Of the heavens and the earth - Gen 1:1; Exo 20:11. 23. Of mankind, both male & female - Gen 1:27 / 5:2 3. 24. Even in the womb, GOD has a role in giving us life Psalm 139: 13-16 / Jer 1:5 4. 25. HE IS OUR REDEEMER. 26. Unfortunately, all have made a mess of their lives - Rom 3:23. 27. Some more than others, but all are in need of major correction - Rom 3:9. 28. But GOD offers Himself as our Redeemer - Psalm 34:22.Created by Bro, Ritesh Gowder
29.

  • HE IS OUR PROVIDER.

30. Has promised to meet our physical needs - Matt 6:25-32 2. 31. If we will put Him and His righteousness first in our lives - Matt 6:33-34. 32. Has promised to meet our spiritual needs - Ph 2:12-13 4. 33. If we will put on His armor - Eph 6:11-18. 34. So My Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ, Do You Now Know Why Do You Need GOD.
Why Do We Need Jesus Christ?

  • The Previous lessons that we have discussed we know why we need GOD. GOD is our Creator, Redeemer and Provider.

35. He (Jesus Christ) died for Our Sins, Buried & Rose Again. 1Corin 15:3-4. 36. In this study, we will review why we need Jesus Christ. 37. Assuming that one believes in Jesus as the Son of GOD (see "Why I Believe In Jesus Christ").Created by Bro, Ritesh Gowder
38. HE IS OUR MEDIATOR.

  • A. WHO RECONCILES US TO GOD.

There is but one mediator between GOD and man - 1 Tim 2:5.
GOD sent Christ to reconcile sinful man back to Him - 2 Corin 5:18-20.
This GOD did by offering Christ as the propitiation (sacrifice) for our sins .1 John 4:9-10.
We now have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins - Eph 1:7.
Thus Jesus is the only way to GOD - John 14:6 / 14:21-23.
--We Need Jesus, For He is the only way a sinner can be reconciled to GOD.

  • B. WHO INTERCEDES FOR US TO GOD.

Now at GOD's right hand, Jesus makes intercession for us - Rom 8:34.
He serves as our "Advocate" with the Father - 1 John 2:1.
By coming to earth, He has become our perfect High Priest - Heb 2:17-18/ 4:14-15.
He enables us to come boldly to the throne of grace to obtain mercy and help - Heb 4:16.
He now "always lives" to intercede on our behalf - Heb 7:25.
We need Jesus, for He is the only way a sinful Christian can remain in fellowship with GOD - 1 John 1:6-10.
