On December 25, we celebrate the birth and arrival of Jesus. The magnitude of that celebration is often lost in the hustle and bustle of wrapping paper and gingerbread men. Advent is an opportunity for us to refocus our hearts and minds on our coming Lord. The word advent means “arrival” and this season is all about anticipating the arrival of the Messiah.
Jesus is worthy of our worship every day and at all times. The Bible illuminates his goodness, righteousness, and power through a variety of names and titles. Asheritah Ciuciu, author of Unwrapping the Names of Jesus remarks, “Like twirling a brilliant cut diamond in sunlight, meditating on Jesus’ names led me to admire the many facets of His character, each beautiful on its own, but when put together comprising a breathtaking picture of the Son of God made man for us.”
