My question for today is why do we call Jesus is a Christ and What is Christ really means?
Jesus is God came as human to save us from the sin…and restore the Relationship with Him which is Salvation…So Jesus is Christ
Christ means Anointed One… He was anointed to save us.
Sin was brought into the world when Adam and Eve (the first people) disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden. So we are all sinners and can’t help it. The result of our sins is eternal death in the end. But God loves us, He doesn’t want to see us all die. So He came down in man form (as Jesus), and took the punishment for our sins. Jesus was beaten and He died on the cross. He took the punishment of death for us, so we don’t have to die. Now, all we have to do is believe in Him, and He will save us. He will allow us to overcome sin, and have eternal life in the Kingdom of Heaven.
Christ is the Greek word for the Hebrew word “Messiah”. They mean the same thing, “an anointed one”. In the days of David God promised an anointed one would come, meaning a king, because that is what the anointing was for, and this king would deliver His people. Christians accept that Jesus was this anointed one and so we call him Jesus (Savior) Christ (anointed to be King) Jews do not accept Him because He did not literally deliver them. But one day He will return as their King and will deliver them
Because Jesus died for us, Jesus is son of God, but he come to the world as a human being. He died for us, When we accept his savior, we can recover the relationship with God.
Romans 1: 2, the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures
3 regarding his Son, who as to his earthly life[a] was a descendant of David,
4 and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power[b] by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.
Because He is the only One who can save us from sins.
Because we can get evidence that he is the son of God. He is fully divine. And he, who was perfectly innocent, made a sin offering for our SINS and saved us from the punishment of our SINS. He fulfilled all the prophecy of the law and of the prophets concerning Christ. All this makes us know that Jesus is the Christ.
