And He Shall Be Called
In this time of celebration, when every eye and every ear should be focused on Jesus, let us take the time to really discover who He is. In the following pages, I have given you the many names the scriptures use when referring to Jesus. I ask you to read each one and then think about how this Name of Jesus impacts your life. Then I ask you to determine the three most relevant names of Jesus in your own life, dwell upon them and thank Him for who He is.
