Hymn-a-Day: 72

Praise of the Lord-His Name

Day  17 – 72

2. Jesus, the name to sinners dear,

The name to sinners giv’n;

It scatters all their guilty fear,

It brings them peace of heav’n.

Today, I am appreciative of the fact that the name of Jesus was freely given to us to save us, and in doing so,  brings us peace.

Here’s the flow:

Acts 4:12 – … and there is salvation in no other, for neither is there another name under heaven given among men in which we must be saved. 

John 14:13 – 14 – and whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.

John 14:16-17 – And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter, that He may be with you forever. Even the Spirit of reality…you know Him, because He abides with you and shall be in you.

John 14:26 -27 – But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things and remind you of all the things which I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Perhaps, we all could use a little saving from the anxieties of life today.

::::Problem: Anxieties of daily life. ::::: Solution: the gift of the name of Jesus.

In the name of Jesus: A gift given to us which brings us a Comforter, and peace to protect our hearts from being troubled and afraid.
