Both Lord and Christ

Description

Three times in Romans, Paul calls Jesus “Lord.” He says that faith in the Lord Jesus plus confession of that faith to the world brings salvation to us!

God hath made the same Jesus . . . both Lord and Christ.

Acts 2:36

 

No Christian believer should ever forget what the Bible says about the Person and the offices of the eternal Son, the Christ of God.

“God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ” (Acts 2:36). Jesus means Savior; Lord means Sovereign; Christ means Anointed One.

The Apostle Peter did not proclaim Jesus only as Savior—he preached to them Jesus as Lord and Christ and Savior, never dividing His Person or His offices.

Remember, also, the declaration of Paul: “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus . . . thou shalt be saved” (Romans 10:9).

Three times in the passage to the Roman Christians telling how to be saved, Paul calls Jesus “Lord.” He says that faith in the Lord Jesus plus confession of that faith to the world brings salvation to us!

 

  

Sovereign Lord, You are the One I choose to serve. Help me to meditate on this truth as I journey through some mundane tasks today.
