His name is the name that is above every other name. His name is beautiful, powerful, glorious and majestic. At His name, every knee will bow down in heaven and on the earth, and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.
How did He get this name? He humbled himself by becoming man, and while being fully God, He did not consider equality with him something to be taken advantage of. Instead, He came as a servant in human likeness, and he lived pure and spotless, and when the time came, he took upon himself the sin of the world by dying a death on the cross.
The story didn’t end there three days the tomb held Him there, but in victory, he came up out of the grave and took the seat at the right hand of God where he sits to make intercession for us, he sits and makes a way for us to draw near to God by his blood. By his name, we are saved, and it is this man we worship and adore, the Man Jesus whose name is sweeter than honey and whose name we celebrate for eternity.
Lift up a show of praise and adoration to Him today, give Him thanks for all He has done. Wonderful God, Everlasting Father, we adore you today.
Activation: take communion today in remembering Jesus and all He has done for you and the whole earth. Give his thanks and celebration as you draw near to him today.
Philippians 2:5-11 ESV Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
