Matthew 1:21 “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call His name Jesus: for He shall save His people from their sins.”
This Lord’s Day begins a treatment of God the Son.
We begin by looking at the proper name God gave to His Son. The name Jesus is the personal name given to the Son of God by God Himself through an angel. This name reveals to us one of the most important truths of Scripture: There is only one way of salvation. It is striking how the catechism immediately switches from speaking of the name to speaking of the person of the Son of God. Who He is and what He does are described by His names. The name Jesus teaches us that not man, but God determines the way of salvation, and that way is through Jesus Christ alone. The name Jesus says it all! He came to save His people from their sins.
Jesus did not come for political or social reasons. He came for a spiritual reason- to save you from your sins. Your sins are the most serious problem in your life. God demands that every sin be punished by His wrath. No sin will escape that wrath. The soul that sins, that soul must die! God has given us a Savior from sin in Jesus Christ. Knowing that my sins are forgiven, I can face the trials and sorrows and struggles of today with blessed assurance. I have a Savior who did what was necessary to save me from death. He will continue to uphold me and give me all I need as I live my life for Him. Confess your sins. Look to Jesus alone today! He is your complete Savior.
