In may of 2004 I heard this message preached at Temple Baptist church in Chattanooga Tn, it was not Bro Ken it was a guest speaker, but I can’t for the life of me remember who it was… oh well.
Being that I’ve cleaned out my office at the church…my office is now set up in my garage! And I’ve found stuff that I haven’t seen in years from boxes that I haven’t opened in years.
In one of those boxes was a notebook of sermon notes that I have heard preached over the years…This sermon is called “There is just something about that name” It takes the name of Jesus and breaks it down with a meaning of each letter:
Acts 4:12: Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
