God’s name is Jehovah in the Old Testament, while His name is Jesus in the New Testament. Why are God’s names different? I came to understand the reason after reading a book.

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
From this verse we can know a condition for entering the kingdom of heaven: We should be a humble person. When God’s work is not in line with our notions, we are able to put aside ourselves, seek and accept it with a humble heart, thus we are sure to gain God’s salvation and finally share in the good blessings of God. It is mentioned in the The Appearance of God Has Brought a New Age”). We should think about this: Since the Lord Jesus has prophesied He would come again, when He comes and does His work that don’t conform to our notions, can we put aside our notions and seek firstly with humility just as Nicodemus and the Samaritan woman?that when others scolded the Lord , Nicodemus, originally a lawyer, put aside himself and consulted the in a humble way. And so did the Samaritan woman. It is recorded in John 4: 13-14, “Jesus answered and said to her, Whoever drinks of this water shall thirst again: But whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” On hearing these words , the Samaritan woman left her water pot, accepted His words humbly and finally recognized He was the coming Messiah. On the contrary, when the Messiah came, the scribes and the chief priest of that time said “Impossible!”, condemned the Lord Jesus and resisted His work. At last, they cut off their own lives because of their arrogance. says, “Put aside your view of ‘impossible’! The more that people believe something is impossible, the more likely it is to occur, for the wisdom of God soars higher than the heavens, God’s thoughts are higher than man’s thoughts, and the work of God transcends the limits of man’s thinking and conception. The more that something is impossible, the more there is the truth to be sought; the more that something is beyond the conception and imagination of man, the more it contains the will of God” (“
