I Chronicles 16: 35 ” Cry out, ‘Save us, O God our Savior; gather us and deliever us from the nations, that we may give thanks to Your holy name, that we may glory in Your praise.’ “

The thread of our Lord Jesus Christ is woven throughout the Scriptures.  The Hebrew word in this OT  verse for “Save us!” is Yasa.  The personal name of Jesus comes from this root word, Yasa.  This can be found in Matthew 1:21 as the angel of the Lord is revealing to Joseph the miraculous conception of his soon-to-be wife.  “Mary will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”     “Save us!” can also be found later in Matthew as Jesus is making His triumphal entry into Jerusalem and the crowds along the road are crying out “Hosanna!” or “Save us!”  Jesus was and still is the Savior of our souls and the world today.
