Jesus Christ, Lord and Saviour.Jesus, the baby in the manger, the infant on the run in Egypt, the boy in the Temple, the carpenter from Galilee, the teacher in Judaea, the man on the cross. But this Jesus is the Christ, or in Jewish terms, the Messiah. The Anointed One of God, the promised one from long ago.
And what is he anointed, or chosen, to be? What is the promise that he comes to fulfil? None other than the Lord of all creation, the Saviour of the world! The salvation he brings is from being dead in sin and slaves of lawlessness; the Lordship he exercises is eternal life and true freedom.
Just five words, but to those who are his, all the words ever written couldn't come close to describing him.
