Heavenly Father, I come in the Name of your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to thank You for describing Jesus’ attributes by the Names that He is called in the Bible. All of the Names represent who He is and what He is doing. One of the most critical Names that I am grateful for is what His resurrection means and that He has power over death. Jesus said in John 11:25b, “‘I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.‘”
Another Name that is a blessing for believers is where You, Jesus, describe yourself as a Vine. You make it clear that without a good relationship with You, we accomplish nothing. We have to be completely dependent on You for spiritual life. John 15:5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” Thank you for this Name used for Jesus that is simple and easy to relate to.
You also call Yourself “the Bread of Life.” Just as I eat bread to take care of my physical hunger, You invite me to have a daily walk with You to sustain my spiritual life. John 6:35 “And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.’”
It is a blessing as I walk through this dark world, that just as in the Old Testament when the pillar of fire represented God’s presence, protection, and guidance, You (Jesus) represent these same attributes for me today. John 8:12 “Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
Thank you for the powerful messages represented in these Names, as well as many others in the Bible. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
