Faith Filled Friday: Our Savior, Who is Christ the Lord

December 24, 2021

by Dr. Stanley with In Touch Ministries

In recent years the celebration of Christmas has become more a gift-giving holiday than a celebration of Jesus’ birth. Dr. Stanley revisits the story of Jesus’ birth and explores the names and titles given to our Savior in his sermon on December 18, 2021. He explains why angels announced Jesus’ birth, which was something I had never thought about.

He also explains all three names for Jesus that are used in the title to this article. What I like best about Dr. Stanley is that he is easy to listen to. He does not talk at you, more like he’s talking with you.

The following are a few of the highlights.

Who is Jesus?

1. A Savior: 1 Peter 1:18-21; Ephesians 1:7-8; Colossians 1:13-14, 15

Jesus is called a Savior because He came to rescue people from the penalty of their sins.

2. The Son of God: Colossians 1:15; Luke 24:47-49

Although there is only one God, He exists in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

3. Christ: Luke 24:47-49; Colossians 2:3-4

Jesus is also the Christ, which means the anointed one or Messiah.

4. Lord: Luke 2:11; John 8:18-19; John 10:28-30; Romans 10:9-11, 13

This term emphasizes Jesus’ deity.

The Christmas Announcement

The only way to save us from this hopeless condition was for God the Father to send His only begotten Son to earth to be born of a virgin. Jesus lived a sinless life and offered Himself as a sacrifice for our sins by dying on the cross.

For all of us who have believed in Jesus Christ, God has “rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins” (Col. 1:13-14). Jesus truly is our Savior.

It’s only a thirty minute sermon, but well worth your time. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I even watched it again before posting!
