Matthew 1:21
He Shall Save

21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.

A virgin woman – from among all other women of a chosen tribe
Singled out not because of high station in life;
Not because of recommendations of important people;
But chosen by God alone – sovereignly.

A special name – from the Author of the book of life – a name is given
To identify a special son – miraculously conceived and born
Without fanfare or pomp of men, but heralded by angels –
Searched for by men of faith – earnestly.

The name and the work – both identified before His birth;
Both signifying a need that He must meet –
That He alone can meet – His name JESUS –
The Savior needed by sinners – desperately.

His people – “His own” who waited impatiently for deliverance;
Didn’t know what they really were missing – forgiveness
Of sins, long gotten used to and accepted – rejected Him;
Not realizing what they would suffer – hopelessly.

Now “His people” are from every place on earth –
They have heard, and believed and accepted Him and His grace;
Finally rescued, redeemed, regenerated, received by Him
They love His name, “JESUS”, and worship Him – gratefully.

“The name of Jesus is sweet to my ears Father God, for it reminds me daily that I am not abandoned because of my sins. I am accepted by Thee because He has saved me from my sins. How grateful I am to have been brought to Thee as a “son” who has received Him. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.”
