Thought For Today - June 21
Sweetest name I know!
"Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! sweetest name I know,", as the song writer has said: "fills my every longing, keeps me singing as I go".
Think of all that Jesus is, and means to us: He is our God - The creator of us all. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." John 1: 1-3.
He is our savior - our sin substitute. He who knew no sin was made sin for us, and died in our place so that we sinners might be justified and stand righteous before God.
He is our high priest - He is in the presence of God, the father, always pleading our cause and offering his own blood on our behalf as a sacrifice for us.
He is our advocate - our lawyer in heaven.
He is our closest relative - our elder brother.
He is our personal physician - "Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases. Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with loving kindness and tender mercies: who satisfieth thy mouth with good things: so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's." Psalm 103: 1-5.
He is our best friend - A friend that sticketh closer than a brother. A friend in need is a friend indeed.
He is our comforter in times of trouble, and distress and great need.
He is our tour guide to Heaven. "I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the father but by me," Jesus said.
Jesus is all these things to us and much more. Blessed be his holy name. Could we ever love him and serve him too much for all that he is, and has done for us? I think not.
