Merry Christmas to all of you.
Today we focus on Jesus, the Savior of the world. To save is to keep away from danger, to remove from harms way, to intervene, to eliminate or neutralize danger. Jesus comes into the equation because the world has sinned against God. To sin is to miss the mark. The work is the standard set by the Lord. Whenever we come short of the standard that God has set, we have sinned, sin produces death, both physical and spiritual. The agent that helps us understand the extent and nature of sin is called law.

Law calls out sin. Grace takes out sin. Jesus’ role as a Savior plays out in four ways; firstly, He defeats Satan, who uses sin to enslave us. In defeating Satan, Jesus takes out the enemy of God and man, and without abolishing His work and power. Satan is not out of business, but he does not have to be in business.

Secondly, he fulfils the law that requires that sin is dealt wit through righteousness. Jesus becomes lamb of God, a role that requires that He is sinless and righteous. He becomes sin for us, even though He did not have any sin in Him, so that we can become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:25) Thirdly, Jesus takes away our sin. He becomes the lamb of God that takes away our sin by His blood. Through His blood, He cleanses our sin and makes us worthy before God, so we can approach Him.

Fourthly, Jesus conquers death, and rises again to prove that resurrection is now the goal, and not death. With death defeated, the last bastion of man’s enemies has fallen. Eternal life is now a reality, not a myth. Jesus is truly the Savior of the world. In response to all this, we must all accept Him as our Lord and Savior. We must then
proclaim Him to the nations, so that they can accept Him as their Savior. We must also know that there is no other name y which we can be saved, apart from the name of Jesus.
