The Names of Christ - Philippians 2:5-11

The Bible ascribes many different names to Jesus, all of which provide great insight into His character and person. Here are some from John's gospel that I find particularly revealing:

The Good Shepherd (10:11) protects his sheep at all cost from predators. They know His voice and follow Him.

The Door (vv. 7-9) is the only way to enter heaven. Whoever enters through the "gate" of Christ will be saved.

The Vine (15:1-10) is the source of our spiritual life. When we stay intimately connected to Jesus, we bear fruit. If we do not remain in Him, we wither.

The Bread of Life (6:25-35) the only one who can truly satisfy our hearts. Jesus feeds our souls with sustenance that never leaves us wanting for more.

The Light of the World (9:5) shines His light through our countenance as a ministry and testimony to a dark world.

The Way (14:6) to happiness, peace, joy, and eternal life is Jesus Christ.

The Truth (14:6) of His revelation, as recorded in the New Testament, is the reason we can know as much as we do about God.

The Life (14:6) Jesus imparts to believers is powerful, effective, and fruitful, not only in eternity but here on earth as well.

In biblical times, Israelites would choose a baby's name based on the child's characteristics or a hope or prayer of the parent. The names given to Jesus tell a great deal about His ministry on earth 2,000 years ago. The scriptural names describing Him reveal who He was and is and will be for eternity.

Current Sermon Series
      God is with us - in answered promises, realized dreams, and refreshed hope. How could we help but sing? Let's explore the songs born from our joy that Christ has entered the world. Join us for Carols.

Last Week:
      We continued our series Carols by looking into the Christmas Carol, Away In A Manger. Jesus is Lord. Period. He's not a part-time Lord and He doesn't want part-time followers. He doesn't want partially surrendered Christians. He doesn't want lip service, He wants life service. He wants and deserves fully surrendered Christians.
      Sunday's message is usually available for streaming or for download on our
sermons page, or by visiting us on iTunes.

Next Week:
      We will continue our Christmas season message series by digging into the Christmas Carol of O Come, O Come, Emmanuel. We hope to see you there!
