“And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ.”
Matthew 23:10 (NKJV)


Christ is our English translation from the Greek word Christos meaning Anointed One. It is found over 560 times in the New Testament and is used as an epithet (descriptive destination) in conjunction with Jesus.

The Hebrew word used in the Old Testament for the coming Anointed One is Meshiach or Mashiyach.  

Jesus was the promised Messiah of the Old Testament, fulfilled in the person of Jesus Christ in the New Testament. He came as the Anointed Prophet, Priest and King, fulfilling every need we have to be accepted by God and to live out the victorious and abundant Christian life.


Have you noticed that some introductions have the power to change everything?

“Let me connect you with an agent friend of mine,” she said with a smile. “She can help.” 

Have you ever had someone you knew connect you with someone they wanted you to meet? 

That’s how I got my agent. Jessica connected me with Blythe and Blythe connected me with Kim and The Making of a Mom was published within a year.

Jesus came as the Christ – the One who fulfilled the roles of Prophet, Priest, and King. He came to reveal the Father to us – to connect us with God. As the Christ, Jesus not only introduces us to the Heavenly Father, He also intercedes for us, leads us in the way we should live, and anoints us when we receive Christ to become all God created us to be.

I’m thankful Jessica introduced me to Blythe. It changed my life dramatically.

But beyond any introduction I’ve ever had was the day when Christ introduced me to my Heavenly Father. That did much more than change a specific area of my life. It changed my heart, my life, and my eternal destiny.

Aren’t you thankful Christ has connected you with our Heavenly Father?


  • Praise Him for who He is the Christ. The Anointed One who was sent to be everything you need Him to be and fulfill every requirement of the law in order for you and I to be accepted by God.
  • Thank Him for being the Christ and call upon Him to be the Christ of your life. It’s who He is and who He wants to be for you.
  • Confess and repent of any disobedience to or disregard of Jesus, the Christ.
  • And just take a few minutes to listen to this beautiful song. Allow yourself to bask in the beauty of knowing the Christ and worship Him for who He is.
