“Lord” And “Christ” – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional October 17th



(Jesus Is Lord And Christ)

“Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Christ—this Jesus whom you crucified.”

The Bible says Jesus is Lord and Christ but what does that really mean? When we say Jesus is Lord, it means He’s Master (Greek: Kurios), one who’s over others.

“Christ” is from the Greek word “Christos,” and this word is important because of its meaning.

“Christ” is the equivalent of the word “Messiah” in Hebrew. Messiah means “anointed one” who becomes the Saviour. So, Jesus is God’s anointed One, sent for the salvation of the world.

He’s also called Lord Christ or Christ the Lord. When He was born, the angels brought the good news to the shepherds and said, “For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11).

Also, Peter boldly declared this incredible truth to the Jews in Jerusalem, as read in our opening verse; he said, “…God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah” (NIV). Hallelujah!

In John 4, based on the testimony of the Samaritan woman, many of the Samaritans of the city came to hear Jesus for a first-hand confirmation, and they said to the woman, “…Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world” (John 4:42). Hallelujah!

Believing that Jesus is Christ is very important because without that, there’s no salvation. Jesus isn’t one of the “Christs”; there’s no such thing as “other Christs”; Jesus is the one and only CHRIST!

And the Bible says, “Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God…” (1 John 5:1). Your salvation is totally hinged on this! Jesus is both Lord and Christ; shout it everywhere and anywhere. Praise God forever!
