God sent his son Jesus to earth as a sin offering to mankind. He came to fulfill the prophecy in the Old Testament as the Messiah. Though he came as the Messiah just as predicted, He also came as the Lord of earth and heaven. He is Lord, ruler over everything. He is the center of our beliefs, our cornerstone.
- Ephesians 2:29: “So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone.”
- Romans 10:9: “Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Jesus told us “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6.
“He who bore all pain and loss comfortless upon the cross lives in glory now on high, pleads for us, and hears our cry…He who slumbered in the grave is exalted now to save; through the universe it rings that the Lamb is King of kings…Now he bids us tell abroad now the lost may be restored, how the penitent forgiven, how we too may enter heaven.” Christ the Lord is risen Again, Words: Michael Weist
