Jesus…Jesus…Jesus!

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus

There’s just something about that name

Master, Savior, Jesus

Like the fragrance after the rain

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus

Let all heaven and earth proclaim

Kings and kingdoms shall all pass away

But there’s something about that name.

Luke 2:21 “…and when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.”

Today I want to meditate on the name of Jesus.  The Gaithers were so right on!  Jesus…Jesus…Jesus—there IS something about that name!  Luke tells us here that an angel had named the child before he was conceived!  That corroborates the Old Testament truth that God know us before we are formed in our mother’s womb.  Wonder of wonders! 

We must take God’s Word by faith concerning the many mysteries of the Bible.  It is good to meditate upon them, as Mary apparently did during her lifetime.  She kept many things in her heart…and pondered them. 

I know we cannot take it all in; it is beyond our senses to grasp the wonders of God.  So many questions, so many thoughts all concerning the birth of a baby in a manger.  Inns and outbuildings were the hotels and motels of the day.  It was old-hat in those days, I’m sure, and protection from the elements with some semblance of privacy.   

I can envision Mary being asked the name of her baby.  “His name is Jesus!” 

“What’s so special about him?” 

“He is a Savior, Christ the Lord!” 

Let us go even unto Bethlehem and see this thing!   “O come, let us adore Him!”

“Glory to God in the highest and on earth, peace, goodwill  toward mankind.”

 Amen!

  1. We discussed this theme in Sunday night Bible study. Gloria Gaither was inspired by God to write “There’s just something about that name!”
