How do you go about focusing on Christ as your Savior? Christ is our example, our brother, our Lord, our guide, intercessor…. but what about Savior? Focusing on Jesus as Savior will increase your love and devotion for Him.
Here are a few verses that point us towards Christ and all He has done for us in saving us. Romans 5:8 “ but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” God so loved us, even as sinners, that he sent Jesus to redeem and save us through His death on the cross. Imagine a love that great as to sacrifice your son for you and me! 1 Peter 2:24-25 “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. 25 For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.” Christ died on the cross so that we might live wholly, complete and be presented blameless before God. He willingly gave Himself to save us! He healed us in His death from our sin and unrighteousness. Now instead of wandering in a world of sin, we are kept and looked after by the great Shepherd who looks out for our souls. What a wonderful picture of our loving God and Savior.
Today as you meditate on Christ, your Savior, think about all He has done for you personally. Where would you be today without your Savior? What would your future be like? We, as believers, have much to be thankful for in having a wonderful Savior in Jesus the Christ.
