I AM AN 80 YEAR OLD MALE, BORN AGAIN, CHRISTIAN WITH A LOVE FOR JESUS. I DO NOT GET OUT MUCH ANYMORE BUT FIND THAT TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE LOVE JESUS HAS FOR THEM IS NOT ONLY WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO BUT SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD NEEDS.

"THE NAME OF JESUS" BY DAVID MCMILLEN
THE NAME OF JESUS
JESUS.......DO YOU REALLY REALIZE WHAT THAT NAME MEANS? NOT ONLY JESUS, HIMSELF, BUT JUST HIS NAME AND WHAT POWER IT CARRIES. SEE WHAT IT SAYS IN PHILIPPIANS 2:9-11 "Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."
ALSO LOOK WHAT IT SAYS IN JOHN 20:30-31 "And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name."
ONE OTHER SCRIPTURE ABOUT THE POWER IN THAT NAME IS WHEN PETER HEALED THE LAME MAN AT THE GATE AND MADE THE MAN TO WALK. ACTS 4:10 "Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole."
CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW THE DISCIPLES MUST HAVE FELT WHEN JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED? AFTER ALL THE POWER HE HAD AND EVEN THE POWER HIS NAME CARRIED, WAS THAT ALL A DREAM AND NOW IS IT OVER? THEN CAN YOU IMAGINE THE JOY THEY MUST HAVE FELT WHEN THEY REALIZED THAT HE HAD RISEN AND THE POWER HIS NAME REALLY CARRIED? I'LL BET THEY STOOD UP AND SHOUTED. WE SHOULD SHARE THE JOY IN OUR RISEN LORD AND PROCLAIM IT TO ANYONE THAT WILL STAY STILL LONG ENOUGH FOR US TO TELL THEM. HE LOVED THEM ENOUGH TO DIE FOR THEM AND WE SHOULD LOVE THEM ENOUGH TO TELL THEM OF THAT LOVE AND WHAT HE DID. WILL YOU?
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
