Jesus, a Saviour!

Luke 1:30 “You will conceive and give birth to a Son, and you are to call Him Jesus.”

“Jesus! The name that refreshes the fainting spirits of humbled sinners; sweet to speak and sweet to hear. Jesus, a Saviour!

(but..)

We know not His riches and our own poverty, therefore we run not to Him; we perceive not that we are lost and perishing therefore a Saviour is a word of little delight. Were we convinced of the huge mass of guilt that lies upon us, and the wrath that hangs over us for it, ready to fall upon us, it would be our continual thought, is the Saviour mine?”

-Matthew Henry (1662-1714)
