Something About That Name

Luke 2:21
Jesus: There’s just something about that name! As He is King of kings, so His name is above all names. Jesus is a simple word. Yet somehow His name stirs the deepest passions in humanity. To believers it’s a holy word; to others it’s a curse. The Bible says, “Call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins“ (Matthew 1:21). We’re to forsake all for His Name, and they we’ll be hated by all nations because of His name, the message of repentance and remission of sins is to be preached in His name to all nations. Peter reminds us, “There is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). And at the name of Jesus every knee will bow and every tongue confess that He is Lord. Jesus! Because of His name, ours is written in heaven.
