My Lent Words 24: Salavtion is a name for Jesus

The Hebrew words yasa – save and yesua – salvation, are the general words used for rescue. Almost always there is a sense of saving from something.

‘Moses answered the people, ‘Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today.’’ (Exodus 14:13)

‘The Lord is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation,’ (Exodus 15:2)

‘Praise be to the Lord, to God our Saviour, who daily bears our burdens.’ (Psalm 68:19)

What are you saved for? To be in relationship with God, in his favour and to praise him.

‘In that day they will say, ‘Surely this is our God; we trusted in him and he saved us. This is the Lord, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation’ (Isaiah 25:9)

It is what the name Jesus means.
