The Name of Jesus: (from The Road to Daybreak)
“Names tell stories… in His name I am called to live. .. His name has to start telling the story of being born, growing up, growing old, and dying – revealing a God who loved us so much that he sent his only child to us.”
Persecution in Jesus’ Name: Luke 21: 15-18. Hmmm, cheerful! But ends on encouragement that ‘not a hair of your head will perish’ … having just read The Last Battle – C.S. Lewis’ heaven sounds lush – so even if do die…!
Prayer: God cares for every hair on our head, but others may betray us. “Help us to ensure this treachery, this hatred, in your name. Amen.”
