famous one

Michael Phelps.  Is there anyone in America who doesn’t know that name?  Probably.  But for the last few weeks I’ve heard or seen (or said) his name almost everywhere I’ve been.  At the restaurant with friends his name makes his way into the conversation.  At the Y, his races are broadcast on the TVs.  On my yahoo home page, he is the subject of the main post.  Michael Phelps.  8 gold medals and 7 world records in one Olympic Games.  12,000 calorie diet.  Multi-Million dollar endorsements.  Michael Phelps.  He is an amazing athlete.  His name and his accomplishments are known world-wide.  

But there is a name that is greater.  Only One name that will have everlasting fame.  Jesus.  Sacrificial Lamb.  Risen Savior.  Righteous King.  The Bible tells the story of Jesus . . .  miracles performed, words spoken, lives changed.   Today there are many who do not know the name of Jesus, many who misuse the name of Jesus, and many more who refuse to speak the name of Jesus.  But His day is coming.  On that day, “every knee will bow . . . and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:11).  I can’t wait!

FAMOUS ONE, Chris Tomlin
