Jesus holds many titles: Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Savior, Lord of Lords, King of Kings, Prince of Peace, Bright and Morningstar, Alpha and Omega.  He has also been described as “despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief.”   Our Savior bears each title with dignity, honor, and much love.  From the princely realm of heaven to the depths of humanity, Jesus carries these titles like jewels in a crown.  They represents the essence of his character, and his divinity.  Because of them [the titles], we understand Him a little.  He is approachable. We relate to Him, because He is acquainted with every facet of life.  He knows our pain, our sadness, as well as our joys and triumphs. C.H. Spurgeon described Christ as the Lamb that was slain…”who wears the glory of an Intercessor who can never fail, of a Prince who can never be defeated, of a Conqueror who has vanquished every foe, of a Lord who has the hearts’ allegiance of every subject.”

All apt descriptions of our Lord.
