His Name is Jesus




(I’ve used this title before but this Greatest Name of All Names bears repeating for ‘in him was Life and that life was the light of men’.

In Him was life
The One who died
Descended to be
Crucified

He who said,
They despised
And instead
Rejected, led
Jesus Christ

His flesh loathed, torn
They smote, spat, crowned


This One, Jesus
With ‘it is finished’
Set man free
Obedience
Conquered Death,
How can it be?

In Him was Life
The Light of men
A rockbound tomb
Could not contain

He broke death’s chains
Victorious
What is His name?
His name is Jesus

She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins." Matt. 1:21

  1. Yes! Are you getting excited for Easter? I am...I know we can celebrate any day...but Easter is so special.

    I came across a blog today I thought you might be interested in: http://laurarath.blogspot.com/ You may have already been aware of it, but I was led there through Dawn Paoletta's blog...who has a cool interview there.

  2. Thank-you for the blog suggestion. i will check it out tonight when I'm not baby-sitting, and yes, I am excited for Easter! Taught the story to my Sunday School class yesterday and no matter how often we read/hear it, there is something more to be drawn from it. Jesus, Savior, hallelujah!
