“For I proclaim the name of the LORD; Ascribe greatness to our God!” (Deuteronomy 32:3 NASB)
What’s in a name? The power to pre-destine one’s fate or not!
Many people give their children all sorts of names without thought as to how that name may play a part on the child’s future. Throughout the bible, we see specific names given to people because the names actually meant something specific. That is certainly true for the name of our God.
Without getting into a list of all names by which He is known for all He does, I’ll just briefly discuss–the Lord Jesus Christ.
Lord–one who takes responsibility for others–who actually determines what they do and how they do it.
Jesus–The name above all names and by which every knee shall bow before the end of this journey called life.The name by which people can be healed and delivered. The name by which we are assured all of our prayers are heard and answered.
Christ–the Savior of mankind, the One who was obedient unto death so we could have life and that more abundantly.
So, what’s in a name? Lordship–giving Him control over all we do and say, Advocate and Mediator between us and the Father who is the One who determines all things, and the Savior of our souls.
Jesus–The Word–God who came down to earth in the likeness of man to prove to us that we can live in obedience and reap the rewards of obedience. God wrapped Himself in flesh and demonstrated the importance of blood-flow and blood-covenant and willingly gave Himself for us–a disobedient, rebellious people who have yet to understand His greatness, and He loves us anyway.
Jesus is Lord of all and He only is worthy of our praise and glory as He is One with the Father. Hallelujah! For the King of Kings and Lord of Lords–our Risen Savior–who gives us victory in every area of our lives when we are obedient.
Because of Him–we are saved, healed, delivered, victorious, on our way to our mansion, living an abundant life with all of our needs met and successful with everything we do. Glory to God in the Highest! There is none like Him, no other name by which man can be saved from himself! What an awesome God!
And though there are many other gods people worship, there is only One who created all that was ever created and without Him, nothing was created.
The only Wise God who knows all things from the beginning to the end; He knows our thoughts before we do and loves us so much, He sent His Spirit back to earth to guide, comfort, and counsel us at all times. No one can love us like Him! And no other god can do what He does! Our God is awesome! He can move mountains on our behalf and reestablish valleys without anyone’s permission and do all things well. Praise The name of Our Lord!
