Hallelujah—Christ Arose!

Sunday, April 8, 2007

What a glorious (though somewhat cold, at 43 degrees) day to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus! In the pastor’s sermon this morning, he read a list he’d made of names/descriptions of Jesus starting with each list of the alphabet. I couldn’t write them all down, but loved the idea. Some of these will be what I remember from his list, some are from me.

Alpha and Omega (Revelation 1:8, 21:6, 22:13)

Bread of life (John 6:35)

Creator (John 1:3)

Deliverer (Romans 11:26)

Emmanuel (Matthew 1:23)

Fortress (Psalm 31:3)

Good Shepherd (John 10:11)

Holy One (Isaiah 49:7, Mark 1:24)

I AM (John 8:58)

The Just One (Acts 7:52)

King of kings (I Timothy 6:15, Revelation 17:14, 19:16)

Lord of lords (I Timothy 6:15, Revelation 17:14, 19:16)

Messiah (Matthew 1:1, John 1:41)

Name above all names (Philippians 2:9)

Only begotten Son of God (John 3:16)

Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6)

Truth (John 14:6)

Ultimate Sacrifice (1 Corinthians 5:7, Hebrews 10:12)

Victorious over death (Revelation 1:18)

Word of God (John 1:1-3)

eXalted One (Acts 2:33, 5:31, Philippians 2:9, Hebrews 7:26 — I know, it’s a cheat, but really, do you want to call Jesus a xylophone or xanthophyll?)

Yahweh—who is, who was, and who is to come (Revelation 1:4)

Zealous (John 2:16-18)
