Something About That Name

Luke 2:21
Something About That Name
Luke 2:21 (NKJV)

And when eight days were completed for the circumcision of the Child, His name was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb.

Jesus. There is something about that name! As He is King of kings, so His name is above all names. Jesus is a simple word. Yet somehow His name stirs the deepest passions in humanity. To believers its a holy word, to others its a curse.

The Bible says, “Call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21). We’re to forsake all for His Name, and though we’ll be hated by all nations because of His name, the message of repentance and remission of sins is to be preached in His name to all nations (Matthew 19:29; 24:9; Luke 24:47).

Something About That Name

Peter reminds us, “There is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). And at the name of Jesus every knee will bow and every tongue confess that He is Lord (Philippians 2:10-11).

Jesus! Because of His name, ours are written in heaven.

I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word. When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer. There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!

You’re important to God, and you’re important to us at www.faithministries.com.au. When it comes to prayer, we believe that God wants to meet your needs and reveal His promises to you.
