Michael Wilson is an avid Atlanta Braves baseball fan and amateur history buff.
I became a follower of Jesus in 1965. My sweet mother led me to Jesus. I was baptized, entered the fellowship of faith and became a disciple (aka learner) of Jesus. This blog is all about Jesus and many of the posts are “Jesus Sayings”.
Μιχαήλ is Greek for Michael. מִיכָאֵל is Hebrew for Michael. Translated it is “Who is like God?”
Names have meaning. That is mine. My parents gave it to me.
That leads me to the “Jesus Prayer”. Master Jesus the Messiah, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner!
And He does have mercy on me. I have been redeemed having shared in the Messiah’s death, burial and resurrection.
Κύριε Ιησού Χριστέ, Υιέ του Θεού, ελέησόν με τον αμαρτωλόν
Kírie Iēsŏus Christé, Ié tu Theú, eléison me, ton amartolón
Master Jesus the Messiah, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
Who are we all in Jesus? Consider the Apostle Paul’s take on things. “When the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.” Source: Galatians 4
