In the Beginning God…

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
Matthew 1:21.

Paul wrote: It was “not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior; that being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:5-7

Take Time to Remember

As you begin your Lord’s Day preparation, take time to remember that Name that is above every name—the Name of Jesus. A heavenly messenger instructed Joseph and Mary to name the first and only one born from heaven—JESUS. His name means Savior and/or Deliverer. As you speak out or sing out His Name, do so with your deepest and most sincere worship. Peter said, “There is no other Name, under heaven, whereby we must (and can) be saved.” According to Paul’s words to Titus all that we need in this life, every blessing that brings life and peace with God comes through Jesus Christ our Savior. Through the sacrifice of Jesus, the mercy of God has been extended to us. We are saved through Him. Our sins are washed away through Him. The renewing of the Holy Ghost is through Him. We are justified by His grace through Him. We are made the heirs of God through Him, and we have the hope of eternal life through Him.

His Name is JESUS. Speak His name with reverence, love and joy. He is the Savior of the world. All can be saved who will believe His Name. In the words of a preacher friend of mine: CALL HIS NAME JESUS! AMEN, AMEN AND AMEN!

“New Birth” Birthday

I am coming up on my 64th “New Birth,” birthday when I rededicated my life to Christ and He forgave the sins of my youth.  For most of those years I did not think about the importance of the date that Jesus cleansed me from my sins and restored me. I think I should give myself a party for it truly was and is a time of joy.
