This is one of those Series that began with piece of Christian music – many will know it from the name: “His Name Is Wonderful” which is built upon a verse of Scripture, Isaiah 9:6 KJV:

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
Isaiah 9:6 | King James Version

There are many names given to that Son given as a child, the One that we call Saviour, Master, Jesus…

Remembering The First Time

Several different things come to mind when considering the thought of the “first time” remembering Jesus being referred to as “Wonderful”.  One of those is my youth choir, because we sang a medley which utilized this piece of music as a bridge from the first song in the set to the third song.  As I recall, we slowed down the pace and raised the volume as a group which just made that song build up inside of us singing and those who were listening.  What an ABSOLUTE thrill to lift up one’s voice to tell how “Wonderful” He is to me!  The “bridge” version:

His name is Wonderful, His name is Wonderful,
His name is Wonderful, Jesus my Lord;
He is the mighty King, master of everything,
His name is Wonderful, Jesus, my Lord.

He’s the great Shepherd, the Rock of all ages,
Almighty God is He;
Bow down before Him, love and adore Him,
His name is Wonderful, Jesus, my Lord.

Another of those times is when I accepted Christ as my own personal Saviour – which has made Him more than WONDERFUL to me.  Before then, the mere mention of His name was one to be revered and respected, but not because of love.  Without any doubt one bit, after accepting Him, all kinds of Wonderful filled me.  Before, singing was a chore, after, it became a passion. Pre-acceptance there was no desire to read His Word, post-acceptance brought a thirst for His Word – to discover a Well of Knowledge deeper than could be dove into but yet shallow enough to begin.


Oh, for us to realize, that in the Old Testament time they did not understand just how Wonderful Jesus Our Lord would be, for He had yet to come as the child.  We have the benefit of having a completed, preserved Bible to guide us along in our Christian lives, knowing what Son of God has done for each of us.  The Bible tells us of His Great Love for each of us – all for the reading, hearing and living in our lives.


There are ten (10) Wonderful names (including Wonderful) that are presented in this Series, may we be intimately familiar with each of them daily.

Wonderful Names

  • His Name Is Wonderful
  • Jesus My Lord
  • The Mighty King
  • The Master Of Everything
  • The Great Shepherd
  • The Rock Of All Ages
  • Almighty God Is He
  • Counsellor
  • The Everlasting Father

Indeed we can sing of how Wonderful He is to us and have the opportunity to have the Relationship of a Lifetime with Him.  God the Father gives us both Life and the Time to spend with His Dear Son, so that we might Know Him and Live Eternally with Him.

Will someone today hear you living out the Wonderful Name of Jesus? Will others see each of us sowing to the Harvest because of how Wonderful He is to us?  Will another person today meet, pass by, or interact with you today that needs to HEAR for the FIRST time, His Name Is Wonderful?!  May each of us be faithful to walk the walk of life, in light of Eternity, singing, talking, praising, praying, living out What He is to each of us!
