When I was cleaning my room last long weekend, I got to see these previous name tags which I wore for various organizations and various events. I love events! If I had a real good camera, I’d probably volunteer to take photos. hahaha. but, sadly, I do not have one. So I usually do other things, which I am capable of and enjoy doing also…
When I saw these tags, I was reminded of the life I lived since College. A life I lived then with full reverence and faith to Jesus Christ. It has been a better.. so much better life compared to the life I lived before.. It has its ups and downs, but at the end of the day I found Someone who knows MY name, and knows who I really am… No pretentions, no make-ups, plain me.
Yesterday, and today.. I have been intrigued by a phrase in the Bible that says.. “who calls upon the Name of the Lord.” If God knows my name, do I know His? do I know HIM? All of HIM? What is in the name of God? Why should we call upon His name and not any other name..
I was watching Batman – Dark Knight in the local channel yesterday, and at the end of the movie, Gordon destroyed the machine which they use to call Batman… When do they call him? of course, when they need help and chaos is in Gotham.
Perhaps, calling upon the Name of the Lord is like that. We give our full trust to Him. Calling His name when we are in trouble… just like we called our parents when we were young whenever we become afraid. But I also think that calling upon the Name of the Lord is more than that. For me it means, recognizing that everything comes from Him. Calling Him and attributing to Him when good things are happening in your life.. Trusting Him when you feel like giving up. Being His child in good times or bad. Knowing Him in his fullness and majesty. That is calling upon His name. Can you call someone you don’t know? Who is God to you…
And here’s a song about God’s Name. Hope you enjoy this one just as I did when I first heard it. 😀
