Jesus is the Christ!

~ John 4:25-26            The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming (He who is called Christ); when that One comes, He will declare all things to us.” 26 Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am He.”

Jesus is the Son of the Living God.

~ John 3:16     “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

Jesus is Lord!

~ Romans 1:4              who was declared the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead, according to the Spirit of holiness, Jesus Christ our Lord

~ John 5:28-29            Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, 29 and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.

 

Jesus is the Only Source of Salvation because of His Work!

His Work consists of His death at the cross!

~ I John 2:2     and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.

~ I John 4:10   In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

~ I Peter 1:18  knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers

 

His Work consists of His burial!

~ I Corinthians 15:3-4             For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures

 

His Work consists of His resurrection!

~ Romans 1:4 who was declared the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead, according to the Spirit of holiness, Jesus Christ our Lord

~ I Corinthians 15:55-57         O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” 56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law; 57 but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

~ Romans 8:34            who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us.

~ I Corinthians 15:51-53         Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53 For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.

 

Jesus is the Only Source of Salvation because of His Word!

His Word is the source of Truth!

~ John 17:17   Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.

~ II Peter 1:20-21       But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, 21 for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.

 

His Word is the source of Life!

~ John 6:63     It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.

~ I Peter 1:23   for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God.

 

His Word is the source of Faith!

~ Romans 10:17          So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
