Jesus is no "HEY YOU" Savior. He engages His followers personally. We see an example of this with Mary Magdalene. She failed to recognize Him but Jesus called her by name.
A few weeks ago Betty Williams, who has been here longer than I have, introduced me to her friend, Billie. Ever since that Sunday I have been making the mistake of calling Betty, Billie and Billie, Betty. I am usually pretty good with names. I don't know why that happens. Betty and Billie have both been very gracious, laughing with me about my mistake. I am a little worried today since they are both here and may give me a really hard time.
Sometimes I think nametags would greatly enhancement my ability to know each of you, to remember each one of you, and to call you by name. Jesus doesn't need the help of nametags.
I am so grateful that Jesus never forgets who I am. If you are one of His children, the same is true for you. He knows your name! Even after His death, burial, and resurrection He called Mary by her name.
"Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot.
They asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?”
“They have taken my Lord away,” she said, “and I don’t know where they have put him.” 14 At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.
He asked her, “Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?”
Thinking he was the gardener, she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.”
Jesus said to her, “Mary" (John 20:11-16).
