Let's Talk about Jesus!

I once heard of a small girl and her family, who visited her Grandparents in Michigan.  Upon her return home to Missouri, her parents reported to the grandma and grandpa that their daughter happily kept saying over and over: “Michigan! Michigan!”

Do you know a name that has your attention? Is there a name you love to hear? Do you love to sing its worth?

Back to my story, there was something about that name that attracted her. It could have been the sound of it…or the enjoyable time she had had. It’s hard to tell with a little girl, but obviously that name had had such an impact on her that she could not stop saying it!

Do you talk about Jesus? He’s the reason we live, and move, and have our being. He came and died, and rose from the dead to save us from our sins – is there a reason we should not talk about Jesus?

Jesus should not be the one we just talk about at church; or prayer meetings; or; in personal devotions.  He should compass our entire being; just as the little girl
kept repeating “Michigan”, we, should have Jesus the focus of our hearts and lives. His name is above every name.  He is the Master, Savior, Messiah and King!  What depth does the name of Jesus have!

Let heaven and nature sing.  Let us sing and proclaim his glorious, powerful, awesome name!

  1. Thank you for the short, yet very relateable encouragement Rachel! Indeed--we do need to proclaim His name!
