Carry the Name of Jesus

Sitting here really burdened about the many lost souls dying without Jesus even at this very moment. Whether they know of Him or not, they are lost. We have the answer living inside us. We know the Way. And the way is Jesus! I mean He tells us this in John 14:6. "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life."

Heard a great quote: "Live it out [living your faith out] and others will see it; and they'll want it; and cause God isn't gonna hold that back He'll give it to them; and then they'll live it out." And the cycle goes on. Thats what it comes down to: people passionately carrying the name of Jesus by their words and deeds. Col 3:17 "Whatever you do in in word or deed, do all in the name of Jesus Christ, giving thanks through Him to God the Father." In all that you do, do it in the name of Jesus.

Think of big name people like say Tom Brady, Justin Bieber, Kesha. Those are all names of people that are pretty famous. But we know the Name above all other names, the Name that can save people from their sin. And yet we are too scared to share it to others? And we know the certain stats of a professional ball player or we know every song by a pop artist? I'm not saying those things are wrong but is Jesus at the base/foundation of your joy?

Jesus ultimately brings satisfaction in one's life. Sin and the pleasures of this world bring temporary satisfaction but only Jesus brings full satisfaction. So are you carrying the name of Jesus everywhere you go? It really doesn't matter where you go (i.e mission field, next door) if you aren't carrying the right thing: Jesus. Carrying the name of Jesus involves living out His love. Christianity doesn't mean Jesus to our culture. We carry the name of Jesus, not Christianity. So let's let our lives show that! In every aspect of your life strive to carry the name of Jesus and declare His fame to the world.

Much love,
