“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9,10,11
Suggested reading – Philippians 2:1-11.
The most important name that can ever be uttered is the blessed name of Jesus. God has highly exalted him and given him a name “Jesus” that is above all other names.
Think of why his name is above all names.
- Because God loves every human being and gave His Son as a gift to the whole world. John 3:16
- Because Jesus became the perfect sacrifice for our sins, humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:8
- Because there is salvation in no other name. Acts 4:12
- Because after we receive Jesus and salvation by faith, he promises power from above to live for Him. Acts 4:32
It is such a privilege to be saved, live for Him, and strive to honor His name that is above all names.
