These names show the beauty of Jesus Christ. They also show that He is the only path to God and the only Truth and source of eternal life. Jesus sacrificed Himself to pay the death penalty in our place. He helps us to live as He lived. By His grace He aids us in developing God’s holy character within us. Jesus is our High Priest, reconciling us to God and giving us greater understanding of God and His ways.

And Jesus is the One who will return to this earth as King of Kings and Lord of Lords to establish a kingdom that will bring peace forever and salvation to all. Acts 2:21 declares, “But everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved”; “there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
