Words Matter

“All our words from loose using have lost their edge.”  -Ernest Hemingway

Too hastily people utter “Jesus” when they stub their big tow, or worse when they are angry with their spouse.  Words matter.  In the Old Testament the Jews didn’t so much as call God by name, rather they referred to Him as “LORD.”  By God’s grace we now can call on the name “Jesus” anytime, anywhere and for any occasion.  My prayer is that we treat the name above all names with the utmost reverence. 

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father (Philippians 9:11, KJV).
