Beloved, how was your weekend? Hope you have a wonderful time in the Lord’s presence yesterday and you are blessed? I had a wonderful time and am glad I made it, how about you? Beloved, we ought to bless God at time, for He is good and His mercies endureth forever.
The Name of Jesus was given to man for redemption and I thank God that He fulfil that purpose when He came. Many people in the bible days did not fulfilled the destiny one on the list is Samson. Adam and Eve one will say did not live out their destinies as God has to provide a way of escape for mankind through the coming of our Lord Jesus. King Saul was meant to lead the children of Israel but the fear of men other than God aborted his destiny that usher David on the throne. (Gen 3:9-14; 1 Sam 8:21-22, 10:1, 15:1-5; 8-9, 10-23. Judges 13:3-5, 16: 19-21; 22-31).
Beloved, our Lord Jesus fulfilled His destiny and that is why we can call God Abba Father. Praise God!
Let us discover more below:
“Thou shalt call his name Jesus.” Matthew 1:21
When a person is dear, everything connected with him becomes dear for his sake. Thus, so precious is the person of the Lord Jesus in the estimation of all true believers, that everything about Him they consider to be inestimable beyond all price. “All Thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia,” said David, as if the very vestments of the Saviour were so sweetened by His person that he could not but love them.
Certain it is, that there is not a spot where that hallowed foot hath trodden—there is not a word which those blessed lips have uttered—nor a thought which His loving Word has revealed—which is not to us precious beyond all price. And this is true of the names of Christ—they are all sweet in the believer’s ear. Whether He be called the Husband of the Church, her Bridegroom, her Friend; whether He be styled the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world—the King, the Prophet, or the Priest—every title of our Master—Shiloh, Emmanuel, Wonderful, the Mighty Counsellor—every name is like the honeycomb dropping with honey, and luscious are the drops that distil from it.
But if there be one name sweeter than another in the believer’s ear, it is the name of Jesus. Jesus! it is the name which moves the harps of heaven to melody. Jesus! the life of all our joys. If there be one name more charming, more precious than another, it is this name. It is woven into the very warp and woof of our psalmody.
Many of our hymns begin with it, and scarcely any, that are good for anything, end without it. It is the sum total of all delights. It is the music with which the bells of heaven ring; a song in a word; an ocean for comprehension, although a drop for brevity; a matchless oratorio in two syllables; a gathering up of the hallelujahs of eternity in five letters.
“Jesus, I love Thy charming name,
‘Tis music to mine ear.”
Beloved, how sweet the Name of Jesus sounded in a believer’s ear. It is manna to the hungry soul and to the weary, rest. His Name is a Rock on which I build, my shield and hiding place, my never failing treasury, filled with boundless stores of grace.
Jesus saves from sin, let keep going:
“He shall save His people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21
Many persons, if they are asked what they understand by salvation, will reply, “Being saved from hell and taken to heaven.” This is one result of salvation, but it is not one tithe of what is contained in that boon. It is true our Lord Jesus Christ does redeem all His people from the wrath to come; He saves them from the fearful condemnation which their sins had brought upon them; but His triumph is far more complete than this. He saves His people “from their sins.”
Oh! sweet deliverance from our worst foes. Where Christ works a saving work, He casts Satan from his throne, and will not let him be master any longer. No man is a true Christian if sin reigns in his mortal body. Sin will be in us—it will never be utterly expelled till the spirit enters glory; but it will never have dominion. There will be a striving for dominion—a lusting against the new law and the new spirit which God has implanted—but sin will never get the upper hand so as to be absolute monarch of our nature.
Christ will be Master of the heart, and sin must be mortified. The Lion of the tribe of Judah shall prevail, and the dragon shall be cast out. Professor! is sin subdued in you? If your life is unholy your heart is unchanged, and if your heart is unchanged you are an unsaved person. If the Saviour has not sanctified you, renewed you, given you a hatred of sin and a love of holiness, He has done nothing in you of a saving character. The grace which does not make a man better than others is a worthless counterfeit.
Christ saves His people, not in their sins, but from them. “Without holiness no man shall see the Lord.” “Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” If not saved from sin, how shall we hope to be counted among His people. Lord, save me now from all evil, and enable me to honour my Saviour.
Yes! Father enable us to honour Jesus with our lives and situation. Arise O God and help your children.
Beloved, on this note we declare this week open and by the special grace of God, we shall return with great testimonies on Friday. May His grace abound unto you for every good work. May He shield you from sin and put His sweet Name forever in your tongue Amen!
Join me to sing this song.
1. How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds
In a believer’s ear!
It soothes his sorrow, heals his wounds,
And drives away his fear.
- It makes the wounded spirit whole,
And calms the troubled breast;
‘Tis manna to the hungry soul,
And to the weary, rest.
- Dear Name, the rock on which I build,
My shield and hiding place,
My never failing treasury, filled
With boundless stores of grace!
- By Thee, my prayers acceptance gain,
Although with sin defiled;
Satan accuses me in vain,
And I am owned a child.
- Jesus, my Shepherd, Brother, Friend,
My Prophet, Priest, and King,
My Lord, my life, my way, my end,
Accept the praise I bring.
- Weak is the effort of my heart,
And cold my warmest thought;
But when I see Thee as Thou art,
I’ll praise Thee as I ought.
- ‘Til then I would Thy love proclaim
With every fleeting breath,
And may the music of Thy name
Refresh my soul in death.
Remain ever blessed in the Lord.
