What is man’s greatest need? There is one great benefit that the Christian gospel offers that transcends all other benefits and leads to all other benefits. It is a benefit, frankly, that corresponds directly to man’s greatest need, and that is where Christianity marks itself out from all other religions on the planet. It alone addresses man’s greatest need. There are religions that offer ethics and morality, and social responsibility, and family values, and a measure of love and peace, somewhat a measure of fulfillment, satisfaction, maybe even a certain measure of happiness. But what is man’s greatest need?


The greatest need of man, simply put, is to escape the wrath of Godpoured out on sinners eternally in hell. The greatest need of man is to escape the wrath of God poured out eternally on sinners in hell. Only Christianity, only the Christian gospel offers the benefit that meets that need. Only through the Christian gospel can anyone escape the wrath of God poured out on sinners eternally in hell. ~ John MacArthur

Spurgeon’s Verse Expositions of the Bible

Mark 1:27. And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.

It was the authority of his preaching which first astonished them; and then the authority with which he wrought his miracle, and subdued the world of demons. Blessed be God. Christ has not abdicated his authority. He is still the great Messenger of God, full of divine authority to save men, and to deliver them from the power of Satan. ~ John MacArthur

Listen to John MacArthur on today’s scripture below:

 Mark 1:40–45


 Mark 2:1–12

What sends people to hell? You say sin. No. It’s not sin alone that sends people to hell. It is unforgiven sin. It is unforgiven sin that sends people to hell. Hell is only occupied by people whose sins have never been and will never be forgiven. Heaven, on the other hand, is occupied by people whose sins have all been forgiven; therefore, what causes people to escape the wrath of God in eternal hell is the forgiveness of their sins. That is man’s greatest need, to move him from hell to heaven.

Christianity alone offers that very benefit, the forgiveness of sins. The greatest need of every soul is divine forgiveness of all sin, and the greatest benefit of Christianity, then, is the provision of that complete forgiveness.
