Jesus is Christ

Third, Jesus is Christ. The title, “Christ,” is a kingly title in the Davidic covenant. It refers to the high authority of one in a very high office. That is why the angel said in Luke 1:32-33, “He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David. He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end” (Lk. 1:33, ESV). As Christ, Jesus is the anointed ruler of Israel.

Fourth, Jesus is Lord. In Lukan Christology, the title, “Lord,” refers to God. It tells us that Christ is God Himself. The title, “Lord,” also refers to divine authority. Thus, Jesus is Christ the Lord who possesses all authority. Jesus is declared Christ and Lord at His resurrection (Acts 5:36). But He was already called Christ the Lord at His birth.

The good news of Christmas is that the Savior has now come to save us from our sin, and He is Christ the Lord.

Come to Christ today, repenting your sins. He will save you from your sins.

The first Christmas is about big people serving a bigger God for the sake of His little people. God today moves heaven and earth to bless you.

The first Christmas is also about Christ being born in poor, humble, and simple surroundings. Jesus is the Savior of the poor and the humble and the simple.

The first Christmas is about good news of great joy that drives away our fears. We need not fear today because Jesus is the Messiah. He is our Savior. He is Christ. He is our Lord.
