Let the wicked forsake his way,
and the unrighteous man his thoughts:
and let him return unto the Lord,
and he will have mercy upon him;
and to our God, for he
will abundantly pardon.
Lord, if we Your children in this nation remain stubborn and unrepentant in heart, Your Word says we are storing up wrath for ourselves for the day of Your wrath, when Your righteous judgment will be revealed. For those who are self-seeking, reject the truth, and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil...but glory, honor, and peace for everyone who does good. Help us, Your children in this nation, and all our American Heroes to see that the "good" You want is to do in response to our sin is to repent and receive Your help, to turn our lives entirely over to You. We do not have to settle for a life hopelessly entangled in sin. Set us free, Lord, In Jesus name we pray, Amen
What is it about a name that makes it so special to us? I began thinking about this after talking to a teenager as we stood outside her church in Black River, Jamaica, one Sunday morning. She asked, Would you mention my name in Our Daily Bread? I asked her if she had a story to tell, and she said, No, just mention my name.
As I thought about her requestand her nameI wondered why her parents named her Joyeth. Seeing the happy nature of her personality led me to conclude that if their rationale was to urge her along toward joy in her life, they had succeeded.
Most parents have that choice when a new baby is coming. But one baby received His name in a far different way. It wasnt His parents choice that led to His moniker, and His wasnt a name given to coax Him toward a personality trait. Im speaking of the One whose name was provided by an angel who told His parents to call His name Jesus (Matt. 1:21). Why? For He will save His people from their sins.
No wonder His is the name above all names (Phil. 2:9). Its a name that reveals His purposeto provide salvation from the penalty of our sins. Jesus is indeed the name worth mentioning.
Read: Matthew 1:18-25
