We are somehow constantly influenced either by the force of evil or that of good. These moral, social, and cultural influences are generally exerted on us by permission. Matthew 6:9-13. Three compelling reasons why Jesus Christ’s leadership is indispensable: 1. His Identity - Jesus Christ is God. 2. His Identification (with humanity) - God, through Jesus Christ has become one of us. 3. His Intention – God, through Jesus Christ came to give us life in its fullness. The abundant Christian life is a package called SALVATION.
