â€œThese things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.â€ (1 John 5:13)
The second verse of the sweet hymn â€œPraise the Savior, Ye Who Know Himâ€ continues with reasons to praise Him.
Jesus is the Name that charms us,
He for conflicts fits and arms us;
Nothing moves and nothing harms us
When we trust in Him.
We are informed in Scripture that He assigns great value and power to His Name. â€œNeither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be savedâ€ (Acts 4:12). â€œWherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every nameâ€ (Philippians 2:9-10).
He protects and empowers us to do great things in service to Him. â€œBut thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine headâ€ (Psalm 3:3). â€œHe shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and bucklerâ€ (Psalm 91:4).
In His service and following His lead, we are victorious. â€œO sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvelous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victoryâ€ (Psalm 98:1). â€œThanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christâ€ (1 Corinthians 15:57).
He is not only the conquering general, He is the Creator as well. We put our trust in Him, for where could our trust be better placed? â€œThine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above allâ€ (1 Chronicles 29:11). JDM
