Have you ever noticed how easily people speak of God? His name rolls off of lips, maybe sometimes a bit too glibly to be reverent *ahem*, but people are less likely to hesitate saying “Thank God” than they would be to say “Thank Jesus.” Right now in our country, saying the name of Jesus can create immediate upheaval, as if speaking His name is an affront. Sometimes we might be tempted to avoid offering His name when we speak of our faith, focusing on God. Of course we need to include God–He’s our Father! But if it hadn’t been for Jesus, we wouldn’t even be able to enjoy a close relationship with God. So–especially in these days when so many people are trying to get Christians to shut up about their Savior–we need to be openly proclaiming Jesus. This world NEEDS Him badly…
