Today we continue on to the 6th song on the album, ‘No Other Name’. Grab yourself a biccy or slice of cake. I’ve just inhaled a packet of chippies (or crisps…depending on country of origin!) Ready? Onwards…
I love the name of Jesus. As a worship leader I have found that singing out the name of Jesus cuts through apathy in a way that nothing else can. It’s hard to sing his name and declare who he is without passion, and even if we start with little, it’s amazing how it rises when we sing out his name!
I am in constant awe of the love that it took to tear Heaven open and for Jesus to enter our world. He forsook the glory of his surroundings because of the love the Father has for us. I marvel at Jesus determination to go through with the most excruciating of deaths…for me…for every one of us.
I know that the best decision I have ever or will ever make in my life was asking Jesus into my life, accepting his gift of salvation, being reconciled to Father God and receiving the Holy Spirit as my constant companion, guide and teacher. I have experienced the love, salvation and healing…physical, emotional and spiritual… that only Jesus can provide.
I’m aware that stating that Jesus is the only way may well be offensive to some, but I cannot remain silent about the life I have discovered in Jesus and the ability for all to have it.
Since meeting Jesus and being reconciled to the Father I have been on an adventure. Adventure really is the only way to describe it. I won’t pretend there haven’t been harrowing, gut wrenching, potentially soul destroying moments along the way; but I can attest that God has caught me when I have fallen, comforted me in my grief and given me hope when circumstances looked hopeless.
I cannot imagine my life without God. I don’t want to. His Presence makes up for every disappointment, real and perceived. His Presence puts everything into perspective. I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to meet Jesus. I will be forever grateful that my parents took me to church and that others invested their time to teach and guide me.
I am eternally grateful to a God who wanted me home and spared no expense in redeeming me. This is the reason I created ‘FOUND’. I have been FOUND; I have FOUND and I want others to be FOUND in Him.
I think that’s all I have to say on the matter. I could ramble on and on…but I won’t…There really is no other name but Jesus.
May you discover the truth of who He is and His love for you today!
