“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Acts 4:12

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

There is salvation in no one else [but Jesus]!

God has given no other name under heaven

by which we must be saved.

.

– Acts 4:12 (NLT)

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

Salvation is to be found through Jesus alone

and the invocation of the name of Jesus is all-powerful

because it is our Saviour’s own name

.

According to the Hebrew root,

the name Jesus in fact means saviour.

.

The Catechism of St. Pius V says this about the name of Jesus:

“Jesus is…a name given to Him not accidentally,

or by the judgment or will of man,

but by the counsel and command of God [].

All other names which prophecy gave to the Son of God

– Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace –

all are comprised in this one name Jesus;

for while they partially signified the salvation which He was to bestow on us,

this name [Jesus] included the force and meaning of all human salvation."

.

Our Lord Himself told His Apostles this:

" If you ask anything of the Father in my name,

He will give it to you. (Jn 16:23),

.

Today, as ever, the power of His name

works wonders in the souls of those who call upon Him.

Don’t, therefore, be afraid to call our Lord by His name – Jesus –

and to tell Him that you love Him!

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Jesus, I need You.

Jesus, I love You.

Thank You, Jesus.

Forgive me, Jesus.

Jesus, You are my salvation!
