Acknowledging Christ Jesus as Saviour

Original in French

From the January 1992 issue of The Christian Science Journal

On more than one occasion, while riding in taxis or on buses, I've noticed this sentence posted in the driver's cabin: "Jesus Christ is my Saviour." It was obvious that this statement gave reassurance to my driver friends in the midst of daily exposure to the dangers of the road. And it got me to thinking more deeply about what it actually means to identify Christ Jesus as Saviour.

A "saviour" is one who saves, who brings salvation, who ensures safety. Since Christ Jesus devoted his life to teaching about the infinite goodness and allness of God—his Father, our Father—it is in this realm of how we live, and act toward others, and think, that his work brings us salvation.

Christ Jesus was sent by God to save the world from the falsehoods that life is separate from God, Spirit, and that anything unlike Spirit, God, can influence the life of man.
