Jesus Is The Sweetest Name {Thankful Thursdays}

Over 900 times in the New Testament, you will find the name, Jesus. Such a sweet and powerful name! The name Jesus is known around the world and when His name is spoken, people know who He is whether they are a believer in Him or not. I’ll never forget hearing my husband’s aunt and cousin singing the song "Jesus is the Sweetest Name I Know" to my father-in-law when he passed away. All the noise and drama in the back of the room hushed to the sweet words of this song.
Jesus is the Sweetest Name: A mighty name, a powerful name, Jesus is the Sweetest Name I Know. He fights our battles; He is our Leader, our Protector, and He is our Saviour. Thankful Thursdays linkup at frogslilypad.net

Jesus is the Sweetest Name


Not one time in the Old Testament is the name Jesus mentioned, but there is the name Joshua. Joshua led the Children of Israel through battles, across a river and into the Promised Land. During those years, he stayed steadfast in his allegiance to God and to the people. Joshua was a type of our Lord, who is our Joshua. When Jesus was on earth, He stayed steadfast in his allegiance to God and to you and me by facing the cross and the tomb. Today, He fights our battles; He leads us across the rivers of life while protecting us, and He is our Saviour. One day, He will walk each of us into the presence of God.

No matter what people tell us, Jesus is Lord! He will not cease His lordship until He has us safely in the fold on the other side. A mighty name, a powerful name, Jesus is the Sweetest Name I Know...

There have been names that I have loved to hear,
But never has there been a name so dear
To this heart of mine, as the name divine,
The precious, precious name of Jesus.

There is no name in earth or Heav’n above,
That we should give such honor and such love
As the blessed Name, let us all acclaim,
That wondrous, glorious Name of Jesus.

And some day I shall see Him face to face
To thank and praise Him for His wondrous grace,
Which He gave to me, when He made me free,
The blessed Son of God called Jesus.

Jesus is the sweetest name I know,
And He’s just the same as His lovely name,
And that’s the reason why I love Him so;
Oh, Jesus is the sweetest name I know.

  2. What a precious memory to hear family singing Jesus over your f-i-l. One of the last nights of my dad’s life, our family gathered in his bedroom and sang old hymns. It was a beautiful time.
