Christ the Lord

Christ the Lord

Luke 2:10-11 affirms the identity and mission of the baby born at Christmas. Jesus is a Savior for all people, our Savior from sin’s penalty and its rule over us.

Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah (one anointed to perform a certain task). He fulfilled the roles of a prophet, priest, and king. Jesus is Lord, God the Son who has sovereign authority. God has acted in history to bring grace to us through Christ — will you accept His gift of grace?

And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
Luke 2:10-11 (ESV)
