Part Five of “Dear God” Series

 

God as Savior: The name Jesus is the Greek form of the Hebrew name Joshua which means, “JEHOVAH SAVIOR.” 

 

·        The name “Jesus” was more than a name.  It is an affirmation of Jesus’ IDENTITY and an expression of his WORK.

 

God as Redeemer: The title “Redeemer” means “to BUY BACK.”  There is a COST associated with redemption.

 

·        Atonement = “At-One-Ment” Because of Jesus’ finished work on the cross, we are reconciled with God.

 

Responding to God: The work of the Savior and Redeemer has been done for us.  But it is no use unless we respond.

 

1.   ADMIT to God that you are a sinner and need salvation—(Romans 3:23).

2.   BELIEVE in Jesus Christ as God’s Son and receive Jesus’ gifts of forgiveness—(John 3:16).

3.   CONFESS your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord to others—(Romans 10:9-10).

4.   DEMONSTRATE your response to Jesus in believer’s baptism and through ministry.
