What is it about the name of Jesus?
I remember three years ago. So many people turned politics into their savior. So many Christians or “Christians” were bowing at the feet of whatever person would save them. It was quite a spectacle and both fun and sad to observe.
The passion for their savior, I mean candidate, was intense to say the least. I had never seen such passion in these people. OK, I forgot about sports, but other than that I had never seen such passion. Oh, I forgot about hunting and fishing, but other than that I’ve never seen such passion. I guess I’ll stop pretending. They are more excited about leaving work at five than they are about Jesus.
I really like the lines from KB’s Zone Out.
I’ve seen the Lord, the same I’ll never be
Some say they’ve seen the Lord but live on casually
I don’t know what-what you saw but the Lord ain’t what you seen
Once you really seen the Lord, you’re obsessed with what you see
Once you really seen the Lord, you’re obsessed with what you see. Obsession…
So what is it about the name of Jesus? It is a very powerful tool. So at the name of Jesus every knee will bow. Every single one. I also like the verse in John 18 when Jesus says “I am he” and they retreat and fall to the ground. What is it?
