From The Heart
As the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph, he indicated in Matthew 1:21 “And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” This same Jesus was foretold in Isaiah 9:6 when Jesus is described as “His name shall be called Wonderful.”
Jesus is wonderful in his love for us.
Romans 5:8 “God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Isn’t it amazing that love and love alone would cause Him to leave heaven’s glories and come to earth to die for sinners.
Jesus is wonderful in his death.
Hebrews 2:9 “But we see who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone.” His death is wonderful because He died according to the purposes of God - and He died voluntarily at the exact time He wanted to die and in the way it was foreordained that He should die. He laid down His life for His enemies, and His atoning death satisfied the demands of a just and holy God.
Jesus is wonderful in his influence.
The name of Him who was “despised and rejected” of men has more power and influence than any other name in all the ages that make up the eternity behind us, more influence than any other name that may appear in the ages to come. Acts 4:12 “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Jesus is indeed a “wonderful” Savior and Lord.
