What's in a name

"There is power in the name of Jesus,
We believe in His name"

"At the name of Jesus,
Every knee shall bow"

"How sweet the name of Jesus sounds,
In a believers' ear"

"Jesus, Lord of all,
Name above all names"

So many songs remind us how precious is the name of our saviour.  The name Jesus comes from Yehoshua meaning "The Lord saves".

Whilst I don't ascribe any magical properties to the name itself, just thinking of and saying the name Jesus often provides me with comfort.  I know that he's there, and I know he's at the Father's right hand, praying for us constantly.

Jesus said "no-one comes to the Father except through me"  John Ch 14 v 6.  When we call on his name, we call on something powerful, we call on someone who has the power to save us - every knee really should bow at his name.

Amen.
