11 “I, even I, am the Lord, And there is no savior besides Me.
What can be said about this verse? Well, I think an Amen would suffice, but I think that would just frustrate the reader who clicked on this looking for some deep theological dialogue from yours truly, and I wouldn’t want to do that, so let’s take a look at who the LORD is here in Isaiah.
Luke 2:11 for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. [Emphasis mine]
Jesus is our Savior and King of Glory. Isaiah must be talking about Jesus here. Luke tells us plainly that our Savior is “Christ the Lord.” Isn’t it great to have a Savior who can free us from our bondage in sin? Jesus came to seek and save the lost sinner. He was born in a barn, had no place to lay his head (Matthew 8:20), and died among thieves and murder’s. Three days later He rose from the dead, was seen by his disciples and almost 500 other people (1 Corinthians 15:6) according to the Apostle Paul, We have a risen Savior who is alive (Luke 24:39), seated at the right hand of the Father (Colossians 3:1), and making intersession for the saints (Romans 8:34). He is our mediator (1 Timothy 2:5).
To make Jesus your Savior too, all you need to do is Believe, Repent and be Baptized as soon as possible. Salvation is by faith alone, but faith without works is dead (James 2:17). So once you are in the faith, it’s time to start doing the works and laying up for yourself treasure in heaven (Matthew 6:19-21).
