“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
Isaiah 9:6 KJV
Pastor William Clark Martin wrote one of my favorite hymns “The Name of Jesus”. The words in this beautiful hymn bring tears of gratitude to my eyes. “I love the Name of Him Whose heart Knows all my griefs and bears a part; Who bids all anxious fears depart, I love the Name of Jesus!”
We have a tender loving compassionate Saviour Who loves us so much He died for us. Have you allowed it to go from head knowledge to heart knowledge that Jesus left His Father, His home and all that He had to come to earth and die for you. What an amazing unconditional love He has for you and for me.
A Methodist preacher was asked why he said the same thing over and over in his sermons. The preacher replied and said “I heard the gospel. I heard the gospel. I heard the gospel, then praise God, one day I heard the gospel”. So, like the preacher I am going to keep telling you Jesus loves you.
Heavenly Father, how much You must love us to give Your beloved Son to die for us on the cross. Thank You for being a loving and compassionate Father. What a privilege You have given me to serve Jesus. Thank You and thank You for adopting me into Your family. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
