Message of the Day: Jesus Is The Anointed One, The Savior, Who Will Deliver Us From The Power And Guilt Of Sin
“Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:10-11, NKJV)
Many Jews were looking for a political leader to deliver them from Roman rule, while others were hoping for a savior to deliver them from sickness and physical hardship. But this announcement concerns the Savior who would deliver them from sin and death. The title “Christ” (Greek) or Messiah (Hebrew) both mean “the Anointed One.”
The first people to be told the news that Israel’s Messiah had been born were a group of shepherds in the fields near Bethlehem. God’s gift of such a Savior was evidence of his good pleasure towards humankind and his desire that people everywhere be brought into a relationship of peace with him.
Jesus Christ alone is the Anointed One, the Savior who will deliver us from the power, guilt and pollution of sin.
