The Name of God
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6 (NIV)
Don’t be fooled by those who say a foreign god is the same as our God, just known by a different name. There is no God but Christ Jesus. He is the only One given for us to be known to us as God, the only One worthy to be Lord, and the only One who leads a true religion of redemption. Jesus is the only God whose name is above all names.
Scoffers may criticize Christian beliefs because they refuse to humble themselves under God’s economy of salvation by grace through faith. Jesus didn’t leave Heaven to come to earth in order that we can save ourselves through religious works.
Let’s pray today that we may freely keep the name of Jesus confidently on our lips as the only God.
