Savior & King

by David Cook

Jesus Is Our Savior

God’s beloved Son Jesus is the Savior of the world.  He left His home in heaven with His Father and came to earth to die on the cross to save us from our sins.

See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form, 10 and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority; 11 and in Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, in the removal of the body of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ; 12 having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. 13 When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions, 14 having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. 15 When He had disarmed the rulers and authorities, He made a public display of them, having triumphed over them through Him.

Colossians 2:8-15 NASB

Jesus is the King of Glory 

The Savior of the world is also the King of Glory.  He will return to earth, set up His kingdom and judge all people; both the living and the dead.


Christ Jesus—who will someday judge the living and the dead 
when he appears to set up his Kingdom— 
2 Timothy 4:1 TLB
