Welcome to the Transformed podcast.
We begin a new study today entitled, “Jesus, Name Above All Names!” This first lesson was taught on Easter Sunday this year by Dr. Matthew Lee Smith, Lead Pastor at Pacific Baptist Church in El Segundo, California.
To really know God, you must get to know Him by name. The names of God in Scripture are really a self-revelation of God in His nature and attributes. The sheer number of such names and titles in the Bible suggests something of the immensity of God. The Bible identifies more than 700 descriptive names and titles of Jesus Christ.
What is Jesus really like? Can we trust Him? Why is He the only way to Heaven, the only spiritual truth and the only source of abundant life? We will consider His attitudes, actions and accomplishments – all of which will answer life’s greatest questions about Jesus!
As we open our Bibles to Philippians 2, let’s listen as Pastor Smith teaches us about Jesus, the name above all names!
With that final prayer of thanksgiving and surrender, Dr. Smith begins our study on “Jesus: The Name Above All Names!” Our deepest hope is that you will grow to know Jesus in a much more personal, intimate manner so that you can imitate Him before others in your world.
Perhaps you would you consider sharing this message with a friend? God longs to release the captives of our culture into the freedom of faith. Thank you!
If you would like to explore how to enjoy a deeper life with Jesus, one that God is pleased with, Dr. Smith writes a weekly blog to help you do just that!
Becoming Like Jesus is a chronological walk with Jesus through His life and ministry. This weekly blog is built around the premise that Jesus lived a transparent life with His disciples so that could imitate Him. Becoming Like Jesus helps you become the hands and feet of your Master, the Lord Jesus, in your daily life.
Today’s episode was recorded live in El Segundo, California and edited by Ryan Longsworth in Los Angeles, California.
And now, until next time, we’re praying that you would be filled with the love of God so that you can demonstrate His love to the lost and dying in your city! God bless!
