“We all die for you.” This is the statement that caught my heart from the TV series “Terminator – the Sarah Connor Chronicles”. In the scene, Derek Reese was talking to his nephew, John Connor, who is to save the human race from the robots in the future. The people around John must protect him in the present or in the past so that the future heroic and gallant John can lead the humans in defeating the opposition. They all need to save the Savior.
We are blessed for this is not the same with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Hebrews 13:8 says Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He is our saving Lord in the past, in the present and in the future. Our Lord Jesus does not need our help in the present or in the past so He may save us in the future. He is a constant Savior. He is ready to save whoever at anytime. Jesus is always present with us against the enemy, protecting us from evil. Keeping us and delivering us from harm. In this light, Jesus does all the work of salvation and therefore no work or words of ours can add to that. We can live and die for our Savior but we do not need to save our Savior. He died for all of us.
