Every time the Word of God is opened, read, studied, taught or preached, we should see our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Matter of fact, all of scripture is pointing us to Christ. Remember, “every word of God is pure: He is a shield unto them that put their trust in Him.” Today, with the Lord’s help, I want us all to be reminded of how important it is to “See the Savior” as we look into His Word. God is our Creator, our Redeemer, our Lord and our King! Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, is our Savior — (these truths are remarkable and indisputable).
This morning, as I share verses from Psalm 19, I want you to know that you can “See the Savior” in His creation, in His Word and you can see Him in His grace and forgiveness. These things are shown to us through His Son Jesus.
Psalm 19, points us to salvation, redemption and the grace of God found in Christ Jesus. We see in this Psalm what God has given to man. Let us never forget what Christ has done for us.
1. We should “See the Savior” in creation.
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.” Psalm 19:1-6 KJV.
You see, the Heavens declare the power and wisdom of God. They also “tell out” His purpose and plan. Creation is a witness of God to man; its majesty and power direct us to Christ. “All things were made by Him and without Him was not anything made that was made.” Isn’t the picture of God, that we have in creation, wonderful? Creation shows us the power He has and how awesome it is to “See the Savior” in creation.
2. We should “See the Savior” in His Word.
“The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.” Psalm 19:7-11 KJV.
In these verses, there are seven things that David states about the Word. (Here are 3 of them). David shares with us: 1. The law is perfect. The word is perfect and you are not; therefore, it was given to show us that we are all sinners before God. (Sinners need a Savior). 2. The law is pure. In its purity it will show you the purpose of faith. 3. The law is true. Not only is the Word true, but it shows us truth. Actually, it shows us Jesus, the truth Himself, for He is “full of grace and truth.” The Word is perfect, pure and true showing us that we can “See the Savior” in His Word.
3. We can “See the Savior” by His grace and forgiveness revealed to us in Christ.
“Who can understand his errors? Cleanse thou me from secret faults. Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.” Psalm 19:12-14 KJV.
Let us remember that Jesus Christ only is capable of forgiving sin. He paid the price for our sin with His blood and life. “The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” He is the only one that can cleanse us from our sin, for He is “our strength and redeemer.”
The point: God’s creation, Word, grace and forgiveness show us His glory – His Son, the Savior, Jesus.
“See The SAVIOR.” It’s time, you see who He is and what He has done for you. “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved.”
As an assistant pastor, and called preacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ, I often have the opportunity to preach and teach God’s Word. I am so thankful for each opportunity to share Christ, with anyone. Though I am not the greatest writer, I am thankful for this platform and this opportunity as well. Believer, I want you to be reminded of the power and presence of God in your life. These are things that you can be reminded of daily. “Let the word of Christ dwell in you.” God bless, and have an awesome day.
