THAT PRECIOUS NAME

“The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.” Proverbs 18:10

The baby born in Bethlehem was named Jesus; “for He will save His people from their sins”. Jesus is the most wonderful name, the most powerful name, the most beautiful name that Christians have ever heard or known.

It breaks my heart to hear the name of Jesus used in vain; used carelessly; used as a curse word.  It won’t always be this way.  Philippians 2: 9-11: “Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the father”.  The name of Jesus will bring awe, reverence and fear to the whole world!

In his book, Before Amen, Max Lucado says this: The phrase “In Jesus name” is not an empty motto or talisman. It is a declaration of truth”.  When we pray, we only need speak the word, Jesus, to invoke His presence and power.  Max goes on to say, “Pray! Since God works, prayer works.  Since God is good, prayer is good.  Since you matter to God, your prayers matter in heaven”.  Pray in the unlimited power of the name of Jesus.

 

JESUS, JESUS, JESUS,

THERE’S JUST SOMETHING ABOUT THAT NAME.

MASTER, SAVIOR, JESUS,

LIKE THE FRAGRANCE AFTER THE RAIN,

JESUS, JESUS, JESUS,

LET ALL HEAVEN AND EARTH PROCLAIM,

KINGS AND KINGDOMS WILL ALL PASS AWAY,

BUT THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT THAT NAME.
