    I’m following a fantastic devotional series called “Christmas Joy” by Mel Lawrenz, from The Brook Network. Please join me. Here’s day nine:

    Jesus

    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. – Luke 2:7

    Sometimes a name is just a name, and sometimes a name captures someone perfectly. The ancients inclined to choose names carefully, so as to make a lifelong statement about a person’s identity. “Jesus” is a name so familiar to us, that we easily forget that it was a name with an extraordinary significance. The name an angel announced should be given to Mary and Joseph’s new child. And what a name! “Jesus” means “the Lord saves.”

    He does indeed.

    Call him Jesus, the angel said, “because he will save people from their sins.” None of us can save ourselves anymore than a person sinking in a rowboat can save himself by pulling up on the side of the boat. We need a savior, and not just a theoretical savior, but one who really has the power of God to separate us from the tyranny and the guilt of sin.
