What a Saviour
Colossians 1:15-16 …. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.
Our God is an awesome God. Jesus Christ is the manifestation of God; He is both man and God. He is the firstborn and was with the Father when their was nothing else in the beginning. He spoke the words His Father gave Him and by His word all that is was created. The Holy Spirit, active in all of this, hovered over what was made.
The Holy Trinity, therefore, was united in glorious harmony for the magnificent creation of a perfect world that sin was soon to taint.
God, who was put out of reach because of our filth and shame, made a way for us to regain paradise. In a surge of phenomenal power and awesome love, God made Himself manifest on the earth; Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the World became the only way by which fallen mankind could be reconciled to our Father.
What a Saviour, what a Redeemer; what a price He paid for our lives. What manner of love is this that we should be called children of God, but that is what we are? (see 1 John 3:1).
Jesus Christ came down from heaven and He lived among us as the sinless, perfect sacrifice. He atoned for us at His crucifixion and made the way for us to become at one with God. He took our punishment upon Himself. He was momentarily separated from our Father and He died in our place. He even went to hell where He took back the authority that Satan usurped from man when he deceived Adam in the Garden.
Triumphantly, he conquered death and rose again to give us the hope of eternal life. As He ascended back to heaven He gave us permission to use His supreme authority to help us to live the victorious Christian life and to be with Him forever – what a Saviour!
Let’s choose to live as God intended. If you have not done so already, ask Jesus to be your Saviour and allow Him to be your Lord……come back to the Father today.
Lord Jesus, you are wonderful. Amen
