365 Days of the Great Names of God, Day 19: The "Yes" of God

The "Yes" of God

"For no matter how many promises God has made, they are 'Yes' in Christ. And so through him the 'Amen' is spoken by us to the glory of God." (2 Corinthians 1:20 NIV)

I've had the incomparable privilege of facilitating women's Bible study at my church on Tuesday mornings for the past 13 years. One of the facets of God's Word that I get most excited about (my ladies know this from vast experience) is when prophecy about Jesus is laid out and then fulfilled by Him. Of course, there is never a time when this does not happen, because He is the "Yes" to every one of God's promises. 

He is the last to every first. 

He is the answer to every question. 

He is the tapestry that weaves together every loose thread.

I wanted to feature this name today because throughout the rest of our year together, we will often consider names of Jesus that magnify Him as the "Yes" of God. I would tell you I'm trying not to get too excited about these, but my Bible study sisters know the truth. So instead I'll invite you to join me in "anticipatory enthusiasm." And may the "Amen" be spoken by us, to the glory of God.

I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to tell me what you really think. Years ago, I explained to my then-two-year-old that my appointment with a counselor was "sort of like going to a doctor who will help me be a better mommy." Without blinking, she replied, "You'd better go every day." All of which is just to say I've spent some time in the school of brutal honesty!
