God's Good News For Today

A name above every name


I love the hymn “Jesus is the Sweetest Name I Know.” The Bible tells us, “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). The names of Jesus fill the Bible in teaching us who He is and what He is capable of doing.

Let me share with you a few. He is:

The Alpha and the Omega

The Anointed One

Immanuel — God with us

The Only Begotten Son

The Everlasting Lord

The Bright and Morning Star

The Bread of Life

The Way, The Truth and The Life

The World of God

The Light of the World

The Prince of Peace

The Savior of the World

The Great I Am

The Good Shepherd

The Holy One of Israel

The Faithful and True Witness

The Judge of All the Earth

The Lamb of God

The King of Kings and Lord of Lords

The Lion of Judah

The Man of Sorrows

The Redeemer

The Rock

The Resurrection

The Messiah

What a wonderful Savior we have. Read your Bible and discover for yourself the marvelous names to describe Him. What a joy that we can know Him as our Savior and have an eternal relationship. Jesus still is the “Sweetest Name I Know.”
