Much more than our guide and example

Dan Cruver has written on humanity's "hobbit-like peril." Even better than reading about Shirefolk is Dan's reminder of just how good the good news of Jesus Christ is:
The uniqueness of Christianity is that it comes to us and informs us of our absolutely helpless and perilous state. The Gospel does not first reveal Christ to us as a guide and example. No, it first reveals Christ as our Deliverer, our Rescuer. Christ came to earth and before most people knew what was really happening He had already accomplished every thing needed for the deliverance of his hobbit like people. He accomplished our redemption before we even knew we were perishing and unable to recover ourselves. This is the Good News of the Gospel.
