Psalm 45:17 I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.
Can you recall the Salesman and Sales Manager from Ford Motors in 1946 that became the Chairman and CEO of Chrysler in 1979? Some of you might remember, but a good share of you did not. His name was Lee Iacocca. Here is another good one for you to guess. Who was born as Marion Morrison on May 26, 1907, in the town of Winterset Iowa? He went on to become one of the world’s best-known cowboys. A few of you might know, that was John Wayne. Try this one. Who was a famous Texan in 2003 that went on to become President, and where was he born? Some of you might have guessed President George W. Bush. However, if you said his birthplace was Texas you are wrong. In fact, he is the only living Bush child at the time of this writing not born in Texas. He was born in New Haven, Connecticut while his father was finishing college.
Now what if I were to ask you who was born in a manger in a little town called Bethlehem, His earthly father was a carpenter by trade, He traveled all around working miracles, and finally died on a cross? Who would you say this was? There would be no hesitation in most people’s mind. It was Jesus. If I also asked who was reported to have risen from the grave and then ascend into heaven? You would say Jesus. That name will be remembered by every generation through all of history. No other name is so well recognized. No other life is so well studied. None other has ever made the difference that Jesus has made in the lives of so many.
Jesus. Name above all names. Saviour, Counselor, Prince of Peace. Others come, go, and make an impact on their era of time. Jesus came and stayed in the hearts of all people and will make an impact throughout all time. JESUS! JESUS! JESUS! Yes, Friend there is something very special about that name.
