Jesus Saves.

"Salvation has come to this home today, for this man has shown himself to be a son of Abraham.  I, the Son of Man, have come to seek and to save those like him who are lost." (Luke 19:10 NLT)

Fish Here’s the story as we read yesterday: Jesus finds Zacchaeus.  Jesus spends some time with Zacchaeus at his home.  Zacchaeus is transformed as a person.  Jesus declares that salvation has come to Zacchaeus’ home. 

So Jesus came and found… now he saves.  Here’s the question for today: WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR JESUS TO "SAVE"?

Here’s some of the Greek background to the word "save":

  • swzw,v  {sode’-zo}
    1) to save, keep safe and sound, to rescue from danger or destruction  1a) one (from injury or peril)  1a1) to save a suffering one (from perishing), i.e. one  suffering from disease, to make well, heal, restore to health  1b1) to preserve one who is in danger of destruction,  to save or rescue  1b) to save in the technical biblical sense  1b1) negatively  1b1a) to deliver from the penalties of the Messianic judgment  1b1b) to save from the evils which obstruct the reception  of the Messianic deliverance
