A Saviour for you and for me. This is the best news anyone could ever hear! And we know and treasure the account of His spotless life that led all the way to the cross upon which He died as our Substitute. We know also that our beloved Lord and Saviour Jesus lives in the power of an endless life having raised from the dead three days after He was laid to rest in a borrowed tomb.
However, He bears a multitude of other names as well. Each of them expressive and significant. ‘Immanuel’, ‘Lamb of God’, ‘Redeemer’, ‘Wonderful’, ‘Counsellor’, ‘Mighty God’, ‘Everlasting Father’, ‘Prince of Peace’, ‘Alpha’, ‘Omega’ … to name but a few!
Every one of His precious names perfectly complimented His outstanding and altogether lovely character. If ever we were to stop and contemplate each facet of His glorious character, we know that our minds would have been dwelling on things most precious. Thoughts of awe and wonderment are engendered within us. Because of such a Person and name barer is He, we cannot help but be comforted when sorrowful, strengthened when frail, emboldened when fearful.
There is no doubt that He is the One to turn to when in need, and in Him we are comforted, strengthened, and satisfied. Surely our hearts ought to stir within us whenever we think of or lovingly mention His precious Name. Oh, what a privilege it is to express in love and worship to our beloved Lord:
