Jesus, Jesus, Jesus what a wonderful name, it is the name above all names, ( we quote this scripture so easily without fathoming out the wonder of Jesus and His name), and through my life I have seen His name adored and abused, blasphemed and honoured, worship-fully whispered and in exuberance yelled aloud in adoring abandon of glory. Jesus Jesus Jesus
Col 1: 17 all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together
As we embark on this new series Jesus, Jesus, Jesus; I am reminded of the chorus, of a song I used to sing in my childhood, at Sunday School and at assembly at school; “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus sweetest name I know, fills my every longing keeps me singing as I go”.
He is a father to the orphans and a husband to the widow. He is bread to those who hunger and fresh water to the thirsty, and a rock in a dry and weary land.
He is our righteousness, our hope and glory, and eternal life, He is the only way to come to the father, my Lord, master and savior, my true liege. My intercessor, provider, protector, my salvation, and high priest.
He is the Lion of Judah, the Word, Living and Alive ( Rev 19:13 His name is the Word of God), He is Revealed from Genesis to Revelation, He is Our Prince of Peace, The Bridegroom and the Lamb of God. He is fully God and fully man, fully the lion and fully the lamb. Jesus came in humiltiy as the lamb of God to be the once and for all sacrifice, yet He will return as the Lion of Judah, in all his triumphant glory
Jesus is the rod and staff that comforts, He is the pearl of great price, the King of glory. He was Abel’s sacrifice, Noah’s rainbow, Abraham’s ram, Isaac’s well and Jacob’s scepter. He was Moses’ rod an Elijah’s mantle, Gideon’s fleece, David’s sling and to Isaiah He was the high and lifted up one.
He was Peter’s shadow, Paul’s handkerchief and John’s Pearly White City, the one coming down from God out of heaven and our soon coming King. He is the revealed Son of righteousness.
Jesus is the door and the gate keeper, he protects the sheepfold and opens the gate. He opened a way for you and me to enter in. He is the giver and sustainer of life.
He is more than wonderful, He is the fulfillment of Moses Tabernacle. He declared I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, a progressive sequential path to an intimate relationship with the Father. He opens the Way, brings the Truth and gives us Life more abundantly.
He is the exact image of the perfect Father, and we the believer are made complete in the perfection of Jesus
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus sweetest name I know…..
