Christ as the Messiah

The people Christ came to were expecting a military leader to free them from bondage to Rome. Instead Christ came to free them, and us, from the bondage of sins and death. It was so much more than they were wanting and yet many did not recognize it for the incredible gift it was.

Jesus is our deliverer and rescuer. He saves us from ourselves! Our own shortcomings and weaknesses. Our own mistakes and humanness. .
.
He seeks out the lost,
brings back those who have been driven,
binds the broken,
strengthens the sick,
humbles the proud, feeds His flock and
gives them rest.
.
.
Where do you see these gifts in your own life?
