Named by Jesus!
The earth seeks to crush under-foot the disciple, while consigning Jesus' name to profanity.
Yet, to carry Jesus' name brings a far greater honor in heaven than it delivers hardships on earth.
The name of Jesus you carry NOW. The name of Jesus the Messiah, the Christ, the Sent One already rules in eternity. Satan and his demons still shudder with horror, and quake in a knowing fear.
To carry the name of Jesus focuses and identifies the man within. Troubles will glare, stare and scare for each devoted disciple who holds unswervingly true to His promise - the good guys win.
Awaiting you are armchairs of perfect rest, feasts of unending joy, soul-filling praises and a name that will last forever - unmaligned.
Stand strong. Fix your eyes on the prize and teach your heart to quickly follow your redeemed soul. It is then and then only you will receive your new name from Jesus.
I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name. (Revelation 3:11-12)
Do believe it, Christian, that your sin and burdens are condemned things. They may kick and struggle, but are doomed to die. ~ Charles Spurgeon
