The Names of Jesus series is at its end. My hope and prayer is that this series has helped you to get to know our Savior even better, through the characteristics His names reveal.
In case you missed any of the posts from the series, here are links to each of them:
Son of God – Jesus is the Son of God. He and the Father are one (John 10:30). As the Son of God, He revealed to us the Father’s heart of love for us.
Son of Man – Jesus, though God in His very nature, didn’t consider equality with God something to be grasped, but taking on the nature of a servant, was made in human likeness (Philippians 2:6-7). The Son of Man came to save you!
Lamb of God – At the cross Jesus, the Lamb of God, became our sin offering – the fulfillment of the sacrifices offered in the Old Testament for the sins of the people.
Bread of Life – Jesus is the Bread of Life, which alone can truly satisfy. True life is found in Him!
Light of the World – The Light of the World lives inside of us, making us, in turn, lights in a dark place.
The Good Shepherd – Jesus is the Good Shepherd, who laid down His life for us, His sheep (John 10:11).
The Resurrection and the Life – Our Savior is The Resurrection and the Life. He came that we might have life (John 10:10). He promises eternal life to all who believe in Him (John 3:16).
The Way – Jesus made a way for us to have a relationship with God. He is the only way to the Father.
The Truth – Jesus is The Truth, and He came to reveal to us the truth of God’s love and grace for each one of us.
The Life – Though we once were dead in our transgressions and sins, we have been made alive with Christ (Ephesians 2:4-5). He wants us to experience and enjoy the abundant life that He came to give us (John 10:10) in every area!
