IT REALLY IS
“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Philippians 2:9-11 KJV
Pastor William C. Martin wrote one of my favorite hymns “The Name of Jesus Is So Sweet”. The words in this beautiful hymn are so true. “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.” Jesus, what a precious Name!
Jesus is not only our Saviour, He is also the best Friend we will ever have. He never leaves us, not even for a minute. A husband and wife were driving down the road and the wife said to her husband, “We don’t sit close to each other any more”. Her husband replied, “I haven’t moved”.
If we ever feel like we’re not as close to Jesus as we used to be, we need to realize that Jesus hasn’t moved. It is us that have left Him. May God help us to stay close to Jesus, not only so we will be happy but also so we don’t hurt Him. Jesus has feelings too and He wants us to love Him and stay close to Him.
