She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”
Dear Father, The name Jesus fills my whole being with joy and life. I marvel that one translation of this name in Hebrew means “Jehovah (God) the Savior.” I rejoice that Jesus is the name You gave Your Son when You sent Him to earth to fulfill His unique role as Savior from my sins, and Savior of all people who receive Him! All glory to Jesus, the name above all names. I exalt Jesus, that very soon “at the name of Jesus [my knee and] every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:10-11). I think of the many times I have worshiped Jesus, cried out “Jesus” in times of need, meditated on how precious and magnificent Jesus is, been comforted and strengthened by Jesus, told others about Jesus’ marvelous attributes, and much more. I pray that You will help me and all other followers of Jesus to be in absolute awe of, and love for, Jesus. May we be devoted to living Colossians 3:17, “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” I also express my love to Jesus through Frederick Whitfield’s hymn: “There is a Name I love to hear, I love to sing its worth; It sounds like music in my ear, The sweetest Name on earth. (chorus) Oh, how I love Jesus, Oh, how I love Jesus, Oh, how I love Jesus, Because He first loved me!” I fervently pray that today You will reveal the full truth about Jesus to unsaved people every-where, and remove all hindrances to them receiving Him as their Savior. I pray all these things in the beautiful name of Jesus. Amen.
