WHAT’S IN A NAME?

21 12 2011

When someone hears your name, what comes to their mind? Your name is your identification and no doubt your parents considered carefully what it would be.

So it was when the name Jesus was given to the baby whose birth we celebrate this week, because it is the name that towers above all others. Isaiah 9:6 says, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called, Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

The word government appears in the Hebrew Scriptures only twice, in this verse and the next. It means He controls and administrates power and law. This has happened, is happening now, and will happen for all eternity! What a blessing and assurance for all who believe!

What’s in the name of JESUS? What comes to my mind when I hear that name? EVERYTHING,  because He is my Lord, my Savior, my hope, my strength,my guide, my ALL. Then at some future day, as written in Philippians 2:9-10, every knee will bow at the sound of His name, because God gave Him the Name that is above every name!

What does the name of JESUS mean to you?
