As members of the Church the Body of Christ, the Lord calls us:

  1. His “ambassador” – 2 Corinthians 5:20
  2. His “joint-heir” – Romans 8:17
  3. His “coworker” – 1 Corinthians 3:9
  4. His “son” – Galatians 4:6
  5. His “body” – 1 Corinthians 12:13
  6. His “steward of His mysteries” – 1 Corinthians 4:1
  7. His “soldier” – 2 Timothy 2:3
  8. His “church” – Ephesians 1:22,23

As members of the Church the Body of Christ, we call the Lord:

  1. “the only Mediator between God and men” – 1 Timothy 2:5
  2. “the Son of God” – Galatians 4:4
  3. “the Lord Jesus Christ” – Philippians 3:20
  4. “the Head of the Body” – Colossians 1:18
  5. “the Great God and Our Saviour” – Titus 2:13
  6. “the Propitiation for Sin” – Romans 3:25
  7. “the Living and True God” – 1 Thessalonians 1:9
  8. “Abba, Father” – Romans 8:15

If you have not trusted the Lord Jesus Christ for your salvation, you have the opportunity to be saved right where you are, no matter who you are or what you have done! For salvation, you do not need anything but faith, but not just any faith. You must trust in what God has to say to you, and what God has to say to you today is the Gospel of Grace found in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4:

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I have preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein you stand; by which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures [His blood was shed for the remission of sins]; and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.”

“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.”
(Acts 16:31 KJV)
