Advent Words Day 8 ~ Savior


Day 8: Savior

“…while we wait for the blessed hope – the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.” Titus 2:13

“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.” Luke 2:11

The proclamation of the angels at Jesus birth is the promise of God fulfilled, the arrival of a Savior, one sent to bring God’s salvation.

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” John 3:17

“And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.” 1 John 4:14

God’ purpose in sending His Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to live as a human being, to spread God’s purpose and ways through His ministry, and ultimately, to die on the cross and rise again, was that He would be the Savior of the world.

His purpose was expressed in the name given to Him by God the Father.

“She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21


The name Jesus in Greek is the translation of the Hebrew name Yeshua, which means “Yahweh saves” or “Yahweh is salvation”.  In His name is salvation. He is Savior.

Because He bears the name Savior, we call Him Lord and we, therefore, exalt His name.

“Therefore God exalted him to the highest place

    and gave him the name that is above every name,

that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,

    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,

    to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11

“…we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe.” 1 Timothy 4:10
