Celebrating the Excellencies of His Name -Jesus' Name is a Holy Name-

 8.12.11




One of my favorite books to read this time of the year is Songs of the Nativity; Selected Sermons on Luke 1 & 2 by John Calvin, this week I read a passage which I want to share with you as we consider the Names of our Savior:

"He who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is His name." Luke 1:49
"The holiness of God's Name is something so sacred and so exalted that it should stir us up to pay Him homage, and should move us to such reverence that every time we thought and spoke about Him we recognized Him as the source of all that is good. Conversely, God's name is profaned whenever we disparage him, by treating him as an idol, a lifeless object, or whenever we fail to to value Him as He deserves. God's name is holy when, as the Psalm says, He is everywhere extolled, and His praise is spread throughout all the earth.

"God's name will always be holy, Only our ingratitude stops us giving Him the honour He deserves, and our ingratitude will not go unpunished.

"We pray every day 'Hallowed be your name'... God's Name is called holy in order that we might learn to fear him in all humility, and to never think of Him without also tasting His powers. We must aim to know Him as He deserves to be known, and to so yield to the authority of His Word that we tremble before it."

Blessed be the Name of our Lord!

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
