Although our sins testify against us, do something, Lord, for the sake of your name. For we have often rebelled; we have sinned against you. You who are the hope of Israel, its Savior in times of distress, why are you like a stranger in the land, like a traveler who stays only a night? Why are you like a man taken by surprise, like a warrior powerless to save? You are among us, Lord, and we bear your name; do not forsake us! Jeremiah 14:7-9

Just recently, one million people showed up in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, to celebrate the Cleveland Cavaliers winning the NBA Championship. Only fifteen men played the games, but the entire city identified with them. As a result, “they won” became “we won."

As we read today's scripture reference in Jeremiah 14:7-9, when Israel broke their covenant with God and faced His discipline, they did not ask to be saved because of their good deeds, for they had none. They asked to be saved because God had put His name on them. They did not want His name to be tarnished among the nations.

It was in the ancient city of Antioch that followers of Jesus were first called “Christians.” If we have been born again by confessing our sins to Jesus and have asked Him to forgive us and be our Lord and Savior, if we have been baptized in Jesus' name and are being transformed by God day by day into His image, we bear His name today! Because Jesus defeated sin for us, “He won” becomes “we won!”

When you sin, know that you are forgiven. Christ paid your debt at the cross. His perfect obedience is yours by faith. Confess, absolutely. Repent, without a doubt. Then rejoice wholeheartedly in the victory won for you in the name of Christ.
 
Insight: “The devil knows your name but calls you by your sin. God knows your sin but calls you by your name." (Ricardo Sanchez)

Reader's Prayer: Dear Lord, like the children of Israel, I too have rebelled and sinned against You. Forgiven through Christ's finished work on the cross, I am proud to bear Your Name. I want to do it well though so I rely on You O Lord. I know I can't do it without your help. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
1 John 5:11-12 cheers
