Heralding Jesus

All About JesusRecently, I was reading an article with a quote about Jesus that has burdened me deeply.  The person being quoted did not believe in Jesus as the New Testament teaches about our Savior. In fact, his use of our Savior's name was in such a casual, slang description that I felt my heart hurt for my Lord, my Redeemer.  How the world looks at Jesus, the Name above all names must certainly grieve Him to be so misunderstood, so missed in relevancy.  He created us - is ignored - and then His very name is used in a slang derogatory context. And even worse, His holy Name is used in cursing. Do you notice these things in our culture anymore: I pray we do! May we pray for those who misuse His priceless Name. It is sacred.  His very Name carries power.  If you can pray no other words, say JESUS with sincerity to Who He is, as the Son of God who offers eternal life.  Please pray with me for the Name of JESUS to be heralded over Christmas and to be revered in 2015.

Philippians 2:

vs. 8 “And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death-even death on a cross!

vs. 9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,

vs. 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

vs. 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father…

Its all about Jesus!
