Welcome to our Christmas study called His Name Is…
As we begin to prepare our hearts for the amazing upcoming Christmas season, this year we are going to slow things down some here at Love God Greatly and for the next 4 weeks, we will be sharing shorter devotionals each day of the week all focused on our daily verses. We pray you will enjoy this seasonal change as we focus on these powerful names of Jesus this Christmas!
I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you about these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star. – Revelation 22:16
An angel gave John a beautiful account of heaven by painting a picture of a crystal-clear river running from the throne of God into a great new city. In this holy city, our nations will be healed, darkness will be erased, and the tree of life will swell with an endless yield of crops (Rev. 22: 1 -5). As Christians, we all want to go to heaven. But how do we get there?
If you were an ancient traveler, you would use the stars as a guide for navigation in the night. The bright morning star is the brightest star in the sky right before morning. It is different from the other stars because it is the only one which outshines the others, signaling a new day.
Lord, thank you for sending us Your Bright Morning Star to keep us focused on Your guidance today. We want more than a belief in Jesus, but a movement toward Him because we know He will lead us to You. Let us never lose sight of Your Bright Morning Star in the sky as we travel closer to You each day until You finally bring the new day.
Week 1 Challenge

Week 1 Memory Verse
Today begins Week 1 of our His Name Is… study!
“Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name…” – Philippians 2:9
When it comes to God, one name just isn’t adequate enough to tell of His great character and mighty power. One name simply cannot contain our Savior. For four weeks leading up to Christmas, join the Love God Greatly community as we look at names that reveal to us the greatness of Jesus:
