“For the Son of Man is come to seek and to save that which was lost” (Luke 19:10).
When Jesus stated His central purpose in coming to earth, He declared Himself the fulfillment of all mankind’s hope of attaining eternal life. Although many ancient rulers and warriors had been called “saviours”, only Jesus, by His sinless life, sacrificial death and victorious resurrection could truly claim this title.
He became our Saviour by coming to earth in the form of a man and dying on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins. The supreme proof of His claim to be Saviour was the empty tomb and His exaltation as our risen Lord. Because He lives, we too shall live. This was the glorious message of the gospel writers: “And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world” (1 John 4:14).
The window design blends the cross, the greatest symbol of salvation, with lilies, the most familiar symbol of the resurrection, to create a portrait of Redemption. The message for all who behold it is; “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, Thou shalt be saved” (Romans 10:9).
This window was given in memory of Preston Miller, Harold Beeson and Rev. Jasper Nelson.
