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.
Who has ascended to heaven and come down?
Who has gathered the winds in His fists?
Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is His name, and what is His Son's name?
Surely you know! -- Prov 30:4
This world is not my home. I'm just passing through. If heaven's not my home, O Lord, what would I do? The angels beckon me from heaven's open door, and I can't feel at home in this world anymore."
Complete justice for us will come only "when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels" (v. 7).
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does He withhold from those whose walk is blameless.
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.
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.
"...but thou, O Lord, art a shield for me, my glory and the lifter of my head."
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.
The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
Day to day pours forth speech, And night to night reveals knowledge.
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!!
I call Him Jesus, Lord and Savior. Blessed be His name.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)
