Messiah

By Jodie Montgomery

 

Matthew 1:16 Jacob was the father of Joseph the husband of Mary, by whom Jesus was born, who is called the Messiah.

 

Messiah is the name which identifies the Psalm 2 Lord’s Anointed King who comes to justly rule the world. He is the long anticipated one, installed upon Zion, having as His inheritance the nations. The discerning are told to take refuge in Him.

 

Messiah is the promised deliverer, identifiable through the Jewish line of Judah and David. Messiah is a leader, Savior for all that call on Him, and Lord. We tell others, particularly our loved ones, about Messiah because He is the source of abundant life. 

 

Holy God will judge all peoples of the earth in His timing. The Messiah is the One Who intervenes on the part of repentant humankind. He is our only hope for life as we anticipate meeting our Maker face to face.

 

Messiah reflects the mercy of God. The Creator of the earth does not need to value humankind but He does. God stamps His image on humankind and His Son was begotten so that we could be saved from His just wrath. This is the story of Christmas, the gift of life through the Son.
