Jesus's name is not treated well today.

  • It is unused: not used at all     
  • It is misused: used in a superstitious way          
  • It is abused: used as a curse          

In Luke 2:21-24, especially verse 21, we learn why and how we should treat Jesus’s name.

JESUS IS A HEAVENLY NAME

  • It was decided by God: The name was not decided by Joseph or Mary, but by God, before Jesus was even in Mary’s womb
  • It was given by God: God gave the name by sending it with an angel to Mary and Joseph

JESUS IS A REVEALING NAME 

  • It tells us something about Jesus: He is the Savior            
  • It tells us something about us: We need saving         

JESUS IS A WELCOMING NAME

  • It welcomes us for salvation: Let’s bring our sins to Jesus for his forgiveness      
  • It welcomes us to pray: Let’s bring our needs to Jesus for his help
  • It welcomes us to worship: Let’s bring our praises to Jesus for his pleasure

If Jesus is a heavenly name, a revealing name, and a welcoming name, let’s use it as God intended.
