How Sweet The Name of Jesus Sounds!
Across millennia Bible readers have shuddered, particularly Old Testament readers.
Who can read translated Hebrew names with ease? Araunah, Jeshebeah and Joshbekasah are but a few to trip over.
Such tongue-twisting names can only ever make the name JESUS so much sweeter.
You shall call His name Jesus, for He shall save His people from their sins. (Matthew 1:21)
God knew what He was doing when He named His Son. Jesus means Jehovah saves or the Lord of salvation. And that is who He is -THE SALVATION OF THE LORD. (David Jeremiah)
"There is power in the name Christ
There is affinity in the name Immanuel
There is intercession in the name Mediator
There is help in the name Advocate
AND THERE IS SALVATION IN NO OTHER NAME
Genghis Khan built the biggest empire
Napoleon changed the nations of the world
Edison created science afresh
Musk may colonize the heavens
BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE WHO CAN TRANSFORM THE HUMAN HEART - JESUS!" (anon. with SoulSupply edits)
This Christmas - honor His birth and love His name, but worship the Person ever more.

'Those who hope in the Lord will not be disappointed.' (Isaiah 49:23d)
