"BOTH LORD AND CHRIST"


BOTH LORD AND CHRIST

By A. W. Tozer

God hath made this same Jesus . . . both Lord and Christ.
                                                                        -- Acts 2:36

        No Christian believer should ever forget what the Bible
says about the Person and the offices of the eternal Son,
the Christ of God.

        "God hath made this same Jesus whom ye have
crucified both Lord and Christ" (Acts 2:36). Jesus means
Savior; Lord means Sovereign; Christ means Anointed
One.

The Apostle Peter did not proclaim Jesus only as
Savior, he preached to them Jesus as Lord and Christ
and Savior, never dividing His Person or His offices.

Remember, also, the declaration of Paul: "If thou shalt
confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, thou shalt be
saved."

Three times in the passage to the Roman Christians
telling how to be saved, Paul calls Jesus "Lord." He says
that faith in the Lord Jesus plus confession of that faith to
the world brings salvation to us!
