Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Christ Jesus, teach me the saving power of your Name …
Peter’s statement, “It is the Lord” caused him to swim to shore to embrace his risen Master, and later allowed him to not only heal the paralytic but to powerfully proclaim the saving power of Christ in front of the very adversaries who had crucified Jesus weeks before. The holy name of Christ is not an incantation we utter to get what we want. Rather, it is the truth of love that resounds through ages past and ages to come, saving or redeeming human kind one by one from evil. Uttering the name of Christ calls every one and every being into alignment with the glory of God, from darkness to light, from dis-ease to health and from distress to peace that passes understanding. Christ Jesus, teach me the saving power of your Name.
This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it! (Psalm 118)
