The name of Jesus is just one of His many signatures. However, this is the name that the angel told Mary to name her future son, who had not yet been conceived in her. Hers was an unnatural conception. She was a virgin – but was chosen by God to carry the Savior of all mankind within her own body. What an honor! The Holy Spirit – God Himself – would come upon her and conceive the child like none other had been conceived. The name, Jesus, literally means “rescuer or savior.” That is exactly what Jesus is. In times of trouble, we can call on his beautiful name and know that He will carry our burdens. In times of loss or grief, we can depend on His strong arms surrounding us with unconditional love. When relationships fail, when we find ourselves in insurmountable situations, we can trust that the name of Jesus will always rescue us.

There are many today who carry the name of Jesus, but there is only One true Jesus. The one who saved all of us from death and damnation. He alone is our Savior. As we think of a helpless infant snuggled in His mother’s arms, it’s hard to imagine Him as a king. As we see Him grow into a man without any sin, we often wonder what was so different about Him. When we see Him hailed by the crowds one week and crucified by the same group a few days later, this doesn’t look like our champion. When His body hung lifelessly on the cross, even His disciples were confused. When three days later He returned to life, He became magnified like none other. The name of Jesus is such a powerful name. One that changed the world.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  2. Amen! As my life journey matures in its faith, my wonder of a Savior grows stronger. God sent His only Son to take my place at Calvery’s blood-stained cross.
