Say His Name

“She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”

(Matthew 1:21 NIV)

Our two year-old nephews are learning to say our names. And even though they still can’t pronounce them right, they’re quickly learning that they will get our attention when they call us by name. Now whenever they’re home and start saying our names, their parents call us to have them talk to us.

The angel told Joseph to name the baby, Jesus, “because he will save his people from their sins.” Every time Mary, Joseph and anyone else called Jesus, they were, in essence, calling on a Saviour: “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).

What was true then is still true now. We need a Saviour and every time we call His Name, He will hear us and He will save us, not just from our sins but from everything else that binds us. “For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13). Won’t you call His Name?
