The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.
Psalm 18:46 (KJV)
God had a plan for salvation - to save humanity from sin and to provide eternal life in the age to come. God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to save us. God is our savior because He put forth the plan of salvation. Jesus is our savior because he carried out God’s plan and saved us. (1 Thessalonians 5:9)
"She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins."
