Name Above All Names

JesusIt seems many self-called Christians are ashame to speak the name of Jesus Christ out loud in public. Fear of rejection, fear of persecution, fear of offense, fear of failure or a myriad of other reasons may be to blame for their silence. Nonetheless, it is an action that demonstrates a lack of faith. One that could cost your eternal soul.

32 “Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven. 33 But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven. ~ Matthew 10:32-33

Jesus said this just after he warns his disciple of the troubles they would face when he sends them out to preach the Gospel. He encourages them to not fear man, but God!

We will have difficulties in our ministries. They are hurdles to increase our endurance, to strengthen us, to grow us more into His likeness. We can not strategize away “the Name above all names” for fear it is too “churchy” or that it might offend someone. Christians! Lost people need to hear the Gospel – whether they like it or not!
