Jesus is only one of the names by which we remember the Son of God. Throughout the scriptures Christ is called by many names, most of which we rarely think about. Yet our understanding of Christ and even of God is limited when we only know him by a few names. To call him Christ the Carpenter conjures up very different images than those associated with knowing him as the Prince of Peace. And to call Christ the great physician gives a very different understanding than acknowledging him as Saviour and Lord of all creation
One of the most powerful sermons on the names of Jesus was given by Rev SM Lockridge in a short 5 minute sermon entitled That’s My King. Watch this video and then spend some time reflecting on the ways in which Christ has revealed himself to you. By which names do you know Jesus best?
