Jesus Is Our Savior.

“It is because of [God] that you are in Christ Jesus, Who had become for us wisdom from God – that is, our righteousness, holiness, and redemption.” – I Corinthians 1:3

Lest we think we can be righteous in our own strength, we must continually remind ourselves of the finished work of Jesus Christ on our behalf. “He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by His grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.” (Titus 3:5-7)

“Therefore my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” (2 Peter 1:10,11) As people who have been saved by Christ, we Christians must be more focused on reaching others for Christ and looking forward to seeing Him face-to-face than we are with the things of this world. “But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for Him to return as our Savior.” (Philippians 3:20)
