Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, …this Man, delivered over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you nailed to a cross by the hands of godless men and put Him to death. But God raised Him up again, putting an end to they agony of death, since it was impossible for Him to be held in its power.
He had a name- Jesus. How would you decide what to name God’s manifestation of Himself when He came to earth?
God the Father chose God the Son’s name to be Jesus. Why? It means “Jehovah is salvation.” In other words, look no further, seeker. If you want to be saved from your worst self, Jesus is your Savior. And, when you turn to Him for salvation, you’ll discover your best self: “God performing through you;” doing in and through you what you can’t do apart from His indwelling divine nature. God the Father will give you a new name: Saved Child of the Most High God. Whew Hoo! Incredible!
JESUS, JESUS, JESUS, there’s just something about that name. Savior, JESUS, we praise You with hallelujahs from our innermost being.
