No sweeter name

Hey everyone!  well, I have about 6 weeks left.  I CANNOT believe it.  the training is going very fast.  Although, the next month and a half will be tough.  I could definitely use your prayers for supernatural strength.
 I was thinking about the meaning of names this week (thanks to one of my friends...) and it's kind of neat to look up what people's names mean along with your own.  My name means strong tower!  ha ha. too cool.  Anyway, I was reflecting on the sermon from a few weeks ago and Jon was describing the fatti tattoo that will be across Jesus' thigh... KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.  That's my kind of a name.  Would I be so bold to tattoo Jesus' name on me?  I guess it's kind of the same thing if I profess with my mouth that I am a Christ follower.  I might just as well have Jesus tattooed across my forehead.  It got me to thinking about what names I have made famous...  Let's start with my own...  I mean, how many of us try to promote ourselves into certain postions?  Or try to make ourselves seem better that we really are?  Or how about how much we talk about a sports figure or a movie star or Oprah, for goodness sakes!!!
In reality, we should really only be spending our time making Jesus famous.  Don't we find ourselves talking about the things we love?  Well, I'm madly in love with Him, so I'm just going to talk about Him as much as I possibly can.  I mean, if you talk about Him and I talk about Him, sooner or later people are gonna wanna know who HE IS!  Couple that with some intense, authentic love and BOOM... He's been made famous!  So, when you are sad... talk about Him.  When you are happy... talk about Him. When you are angry... talk about Him.  Excited, Him. frustrated, Him.  He makes all things better.
There is no sweeter name than the name of Jesus.  He is the light  to our hearts and our souls, He is the light to the darkness that surrounds us, He is the hope to the hopeless and broken, He is the only truth and only way.  Have a great night!  love you all
