Salvation Only Through Christ

 

For what purpose did Christ come into the world?

 

“Here is a trustworthy saying that deservers full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners – of whom I am the worst.“ 1 Timothy 1:15.

 

Why was He to be named “Jesus”?

 

“She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus,” because he will save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21.

 

Is there salvation through any other?

 

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12.

 

Through whom only may we come to God?

 

“For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men – the testimony given in the proper time. And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle – I am telling the truth, I am not lying – and a teacher of the true faith to the Gentiles. I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer, without anger or disputing.” 1 Timothy 2: 5-8. 

 

What has Christ been made for us, and why?

 

“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” 2 Corinthians 5:21. 

 

How dependent are we upon Christ’s for salvation?

 

“I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5.

 

The Divine-Human Christ

 

What three essentials for a Savior are found in Christ?

 

Deity. But about the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever, and righteousness will be the scepter of your kingdom. Hebrews 1:8. 

Humanity. “But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law.” Galatians 4:4.

Sinlessness. “He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.” 1 Peter 2:22.

 

How did Christ show from the Scriptures that the promised Savior of the world must be both human and divine?

 

“While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, What do you think about the Christ? Whose son is he?” The son of David,” they replied. He said to them, How is it then that David, speaking by the Spirit, calls him Lord”? For he says, “’The Lord said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet.”’ If then David calls him ‘Lord,’ how can he be his son?”

Matthew 22: 41-45. 

 

Note – Another has aptly put this important truth concerning the union of the human and divine Christ thus: “Divinity needed humanity that humanity might afford a channel of communication between God and man. Man needs a power out of and above himself to restore him to the likeness of God. There must be a power working from within, a new life from above, before men can be changed from sin to holiness. That power is Christ.”

 

What two facts testify to the union of divinity and humanity in Christ?

 

“Regarding his Son, who as to his human nature was a descendant of David, and who through the Spirit of holiness was declared with power to be the Son of God by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 1:3,4.
