    I do find it funny how many people I know seem a lot more comfortable with 'God' and will rarely say 'Jesus'. Although I like plain old 'God' in its own right because emphasizing the Deity of Jesus is something the world needs a lot more of.

    Personally I find the named YHWH full of incredible power and reverence. The Rock of Ages. The Ancient of Days. The Wellspring.

    Lord, when I am talking to Him. Jesus knows who I am addressing. The Lord of Hosts. When I am talking to others I say Jesus and Christ. I Am, and The Word are favorites that I love to think about.

    Ancient of Days is one of my favorite titles for Him.

    Mostly I use Heavenly Father, Lord, or Jesus.
    and to wait for his Son from heaven,
    whom he raised from the dead—Jesus,
    who rescues us from the coming wrath

    Either Jesus or Lord. Sometimes during prayer, I refer to Him as Master.

    I usually say Jesus or, most often, Lord but sometimes I'll refer to Him as Christ too. Lord and Jesus both seem more personal to me, though.
    No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. - Romans 8:37-39

    I found some really awesome Christmas cards this year.

    The front has: Jesus, Prince of Peace, Savior, Everlasting Light, I AM, Wonderful Counselor, Son of God, Bread of Life, Anointed One, and my favorite, Alpha and Omega.

    Inside: "In celebration of the One who is everything"

    "There is none like unto thee, O Lord; Thou art great, and thy name is great in might" Jeremiah 10:6

    Just a quick point, as I'm late to this thread; Jesus isn't our Father, and we have to be careful because there is a false teaching that says the Father and the Son are the same Person. If we are referring to Jesus, He does indeed have His own names, as the Son. "God" would be a correct title, but Father wouldn't be, if we are referring to the Son.

    I tend to call Jesus; Jesus, Lord, or Christ.

    Thanks to sweeetlilgurlie on Narniaweb for the sig

    When speaking to Him, I usually say "Lord Jesus". But if speaking to others about Him, it's Jesus. And like some of you, I have noticed how some people seem to get uncomfortable when hearing the name Jesus. But they're ok if you mention God . I have a friend who usually refers to Him as Jehovah.

    Lord or King Jesus. I frequently thank King Jesus throughout the day, for reminding me of something I don't want to forget, for easing my pain, for helping me carry something heavy. It just flows off the tongue naturally for countless occurrences.

    Israel

    Yeshua, Savior and Eliakim Son of Hilkiah are among my favorite expressions referring to Jesus.

    Eliakim Son of Hilkiah = God rises Son of God my Portion.




    My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
    For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; the fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.


    Baruch haba b'Shem Yahweh!!
