He Shall Save His People From Their Sins (Mat 1:21)

I. "And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins." (Mat 1:21)
1. The entirety of the gospel is summed up in the words of Mat 1:21.
2. The Son of God was given the name of JESUS because of the work of salvation that He would accomplish for His people.
3. If your Jesus didn't do the following, then don't call him Jesus.

II. "He shall save His people from their sins" (Mat 1:21)
1. This verse tells us that Jesus is the one doing the saving.
A. Jesus purged our sins by Himself (Heb 1:3).
B. His own self bore our sins in His own body to the cross, and it is by His stripes we are healed (1Pe 2:24).
C. By His own blood He entered in once in the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us (Heb 9:12).
D. By one offering He hath perfected forever them that are sanctified (Heb 10:14).
E. His arm brought salvation (Isa 59:16; Isa 63:5).
F. Salvation is of the LORD (Psa 3:8; Psa 37:39; Jonah 2:9).
2. What the verse doesn't say.
A. It doesn't say that He and His people shall save His people from their sins, as if He needed help from them.
B. It doesn't say that He and His preachers shall save His people from their sins, as if He needed help from them.
C. It doesn't say that He and the gospel shall save His people from their sins, as if He needed help from it.
D. It doesn't say that He and His prayer warriors shall save His people from their sins, as if He needed help from them.
3. It was by Jesus Christ's obedience alone that His people were made righteous (Rom 5:19).
A. The world teaches that it's by the obedience of at least two or three that sinners are saved (the sinner's obedience, the preacher's obedience, etc.).
B. It's not the obedience of two or three, but the obedience of one (Jesus Christ)!

III. "He shall save His people from their sins" (Mat 1:21)
1. It was said that Jesus shall save His people.
A. It doesn't say that He would try to save His people.
B. It doesn't say that He might save His people.
C. It doesn't say that He shall offer to save His people.
D. It doesn't say that He shall make salvation possible for His people.
2. This statement is a guarantee that Jesus would save every single one of His people.
A. Jesus did indeed save His people (2Ti 1:9; Tit 3:5).
B. He obtained eternal redemption for us (Heb 9:12).
C. He perfected forever them that are sanctified (Heb 10:14).

J. Jesus completed the work of saving His people when He died on the cross (Joh 17:4 Joh 19:30).
3. If Jesus failed to save even one of His people, He is not to be believed (Joh 10:37).
4. If Jesus failed to save even one of His people, the words of Mat 1:21 are a lie which means that God is a liar.

3. They are those whom God chose before the foundation of the world (Eph 1:4-5; 1Pe 1:2).

3. Sin had separated us from our God (Isa 59:2).
4. Jesus was sent into the world to condemn sin in His flesh, which He did (Rom 8:3).
5. He did this by living a sinless life in order to be made sin for us (2Co 5:21).
6. Jesus died for our sins and became the propitiation (1Jo 2:2) and atonement for them (Rom 5:10-11).
