Luke 2:11 and Isaiah 9:6
"For unto you is born this day in the city of David A Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."
"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace."
The term Savior means one who delivers. It is used over 37 times in Scripture as a direct or indirect reference to Jesus the Messiah. He not only delivers us from something but he delivers us to something as well.
He delivers us from:
1. Sin - The sin nature can only be dealt with by One who can deliver. This condition demands perfection and only the Savior can rectify the problem.
2. Sins - We commit sins because we are sinners. The consequence of the sin nature are the sins we commit. Thou shalt call his name Jesus, and he will save his people from their sins. Only a Savior who can provide a full atonement for sins will suffice.
3. Self - Although the old man has been crucified, we must still be delivered from the flesh. This Savior enables us to do something we could never do alone.
He takes care of:
1. The dullness of life (Wonderful)
2. The decisions of life (Counselor)
3. The demands of life (Mighty God)
4. The dimensions of life (Everlasting Father)
5. The disturbances of life (Prince of Peace)
