Wonderful — Part 1
This meditation is adapted from Frances Ridley Havergal
“His name shall be called Wonderful” (Isaiah 9:6).
“And the Angel of Jehovah said to him, How is it that thou askest after my name, seeing it is Wonderful” (Judges 13:18, JND?
Here is a name that is an adjective, so we may use it not only as a name by itself, but also as a description of all His other names. The more we know Him and love Him, the more we shall delight in this.
If we know Jesus as our Savior at all, we shall be quite sure that He is a Wonderful Savior. And, as we grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we shall find more and more, year by year, and even day by day, what a Wonderful Friend, and Wonderful Gift, and Wonderful High Priest, and Wonderful everything else He is.
When you see a wonderful sight, don’t you want others to see it, too? And if you cannot bring them to see it, don’t you want to tell them about it, to try to give them an idea of it? So, I think one proof that we have really found Jesus is that we will want others to come and see what a Wonderful Savior we have found.
