I became a follower of Jesus in 1965. My sweet mother led me to Jesus. I was baptized, entered the fellowship of faith and became a disciple (aka learner) of Jesus. This blog is all about Jesus and many of the posts are “Jesus Sayings”.
I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. I went to Briarcliff High School and graduated with a B. A. from Mercer University. I majored in Religion. I’ve lived in Austin, Houston, Syracuse and Dallas.
Μιχαήλ is Greek for Michael. מִיכָאֵל is Hebrew for Michael. Translated it is “Who is like God?”
Names have meaning. That is mine. My parents gave it to me.
That leads me to the “Jesus Prayer”. Master Jesus the Messiah, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner!
And He does have mercy on me. I have been redeemed having shared in the Messiah’s death, burial and resurrection.
Κύριε Ιησού Χριστέ, Υιέ του Θεού, ελέησόν με τον αμαρτωλόν
Kírie Iēsŏus Christé, Ié tu Theú, eléison me, ton amartolón
Master Jesus the Messiah, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
