Thought For Today - September 19
What Is His Name?
God forbid that we should be afraid or ashamed to speak the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and proclaim him as our savior.
The name of Jesus Christ is forbidden to be mentioned in public ceremonies and other places today in our great country which was founded upon the principles of Jesus Christ and Christianity. At sporting events, commencement exercises and other public events, those who are called upon to pray are warned not to mention his holy name lest they offend non-believers and disturb their guilty conscience. It is ok, we are told, to pray to a generic unknown god-the man upstairs-the divine power or influence, the god that will satisfy everyone’s own individual convictions.
Sad it is to observe that many professed Christians, who claim to be saved and redeemed by the precious blood of Christ, hesitate to speak his name among friends and acquaintances. It seems that the only time public prayer is permissible nowadays in our great country is when our country is in great danger. Then, we are urged to cry out with a loud voice and sing “God bless America”; but who is the God that we want to bless America?
I, for one will tell you who he is. He is the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten son of God. There is no other name under heaven among men whereby we must be saved. “This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.” Acts 4; 11,12.
Jesus said: “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my father which is in heaven.” Matthew 10:32,33.
