Knowing Christ by Name (Part III)

Standard

Prayer is conversation with God. If we know Him well, we can pray more comfortably. Jesus gave us some of his names in Revelation 1:8:

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. -Revelation 1:8 KJV

The name Lord is the Greek word, Kyrios. It means “master”- a superior person with the right to hold authority. Kyrios is the New Testament translation of the Hebrew word, Jehovah (or Yaweh). Jehovah is God’s name for Himself when He is showing us that He is the Superior, the Covenant Maker and Grace Giver.

A lot to think about: superiority, authority, graciousness all at once. Power and grace. We submit to His authority because of His greatness and His love.

In your prayer time, can you pause and think on His name: Lord– and worship Him?
