Luke 2:11 NKJV
“For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
To save means to make safe from harm, danger or loss; to rescue; to prevent the loss of. A person who saves or rescues is called a savior. In order for us to really recognize Jesus as our Savior we must first realize that we are in danger and that we need rescuing.
Romans 3:23 NKJV
“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Without Jesus as our Savior each one of us is facing an eternity separated from God. If it had not been for Jesus, Our Savior, each one of us would be facing hell (and later on the lake of fire) when we took our last breath.
Revelation 21:6-8 NKJV
“And He said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.’ ”
Jesus Christ is Our Savior!
I Corinthians 6:9-11 NKJV
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Holy Spirit of our God.”
Jesus is the one who makes us safe from harm. The one who makes us safe from danger. The one who rescues us. The one who prevents us from being lost.
John 3:17 NKJV
“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”
Make us hungrier for Your presence. Cause us to be worshipers of You. Let our worship be a sweet smell to You and be pleasing. We are desperate for You and Your presence.
In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
