No Other Name

            Our church choir, of which all four of us are members, is resurrecting a song we sang several years ago in a Christmas cantata entitled, "The Name Jesus," by Mike Speck. We are breathing life back into the narration and accompanying song, No Other Name. Why? It is wonderfully powerful!! (Take time and look it up and be awed by its power.) Through its message, our choir is trying to promote the life-changing power that exists - that explodes, if you will - in the name of "Jesus". Shepherd's Voice claims this same truth!

            The world today doesn't really mind people talking about religion and has become tolerant of various methods of worshipping a higher power. All is well until the name of Jesus Christ is spoken; then some want to hush it, squelch it, silence it, and ban it from the vocabulary because they don't understand its power and effect on lives. But honestly, friend, that just cannot be done. It cannot be eliminated. His name is above all other names. His majesty and authority are displayed every time you call out His name. Try this simple exercise by saying the name Jesus three times. Take a deep cleansing breath first, then start off softly, adding volume and expression with each repetition. Go ahead. Try it. Isn't that so - releasing... so energizing...so, yes, powerful?

            You see, Jesus is far more than just a name in the Bible or the main character in a Christmas play. His name brings power to every thing, every moment, every movement, every breath. You cannot hold His name hostage to a particular day or event because ALL of time and history belongs to Him. Our very existence is totally because of Him. The whole Bible, both Old Testament and New, is brimming with references to Jesus in one way or another. Check it out. There is No Other Name more powerful and all-encompassing than Jesus! This is why we sing it again and again.

  Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12
