I'm a busy person, you're a busy person, we're all busy people. We all seem to have an endless to-do list, and countless commitments. If it isn't schoolwork or actual work, it's chores, clubs, organizations, or other commitments. Our days tend to be pretty packed. It might be crazy to suggest that we take a chunk of time out of our day to simply rest and be with the Lord.
It's far too easy for the Gospel to get watered down, especially when you live in the Bible belt. For much of my life, I held nothing more than a watered down view of Jesus. To me, it was common knowledge that Jesus had died on the cross, and that He rose again, bringing salvation to all who believed in Him. It was as good as fact.
Recently, I've been loving the worship songs that are all about the name of Jesus. Songs like "What A Beautiful Name It Is" and "Worthy Of Your Name." It's probably because they're so full of and focused on Jesus that they tend to be some of my go-to worship songs. But listening to them has got me thinking. They each place an emphasis on Jesus' name. Might seem a little odd, right? So, I figured it would be fun to dive into the names of Jesus and just how they proclaim his glory.
