A Savior, who is Christ the Lord December 24, 2010

“Since the fall of Eden, every member of the human race stands before God as a covenant breaker, a rebel… If there is to be any hope for such covenant breakers, (it) must come from outside… Indeed, help must come from God.”

Our redemption is through the provisions of our covenant keeping triune God who in his infinite love has provided salvation for helpless rebels.

‎”That redemption centers on a person, one who can stand in the middle, to bring God and (rebels) together, one who is rightly therefore called “Mediator.” “The depth of the divine love is demonstrated in the fact that God did not send someone else to act as Mediator: no one else could have fulfilled the role. He came himself, in the person of his Son…(called Immanuel, ‘God with us’, by earlier writers)” David McKay in The Bond of Love

Merry Christmas to your family.  Grace and Peace to you through our Lord Jesus Christ.
