NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES

NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES

For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Phil.2:5-9

There is no challenge you will ever face in life where Christ is not sufficient to meet every demand. He is all sufficient in every trial or circumstance of life. When our world is unpredictable, He is our sovereign king. when you feel alienated from God, He is our high priest. When we have wandered off of the path, He is the Good Shepherd. When we are stubborn and defiant, He graciously brings His staff of correction. When we face enemies greater than we are, He is our captain who mightily leads us in triumph. Listen to Charles Spurgeon’s comments about our gracious Redeemer.
“Jesus, the Redeemer, is altogether ours and ours for ever. All the offices of Christ are held on our behalf. He is king for us, priest for us, and prophet for us. Whenever we read a new title of the Redeemer, let us appropriate him as ours under that name as much as under any other. The shepherd’s staff, the father’s rod, the captain’s sword, the priest’s mitre, the prince’s sceptre, the prophet’s mantle, all are ours. Jesus hath no dignity which he will not employ for our exaltation, and no prerogative which he will not exercise for our defence. His fulness of Godhead is our unfailing, inexhaustible treasure-house.”
What kind of challenge do you face today? Is there anything too hard for God? Is there anything in this world or in the world to come that can separate you from the love of God revealed for us in Christ Jesus our Savior? I am convinced that neither life nor death, nor angel or principalities can separate us from God’s love. His love is eternal and His power is unlimited. The good news is that if you belong to Him, if He is your Redeemer, then you stand safe in His hand. His ways are steadfast and His plans are sure. Today, we can rest in His love. “Jesus hath no dignity which he will not employ for our exaltation, and no prerogative which he will not exercise for our defence. His fulness of Godhead is our unfailing, inexhaustible treasure-house.”

  1. Most of the ‘once’ born acquaintances I speak to about God and Jesus politely tell me they don’t have time or have a need for religion or God in their lives right now. I agree with them on the religion part but state that they may say what they want but I cannot agree about the ‘I don’t have time or a need for God in my life right now’. They tact many different ways to wiggle out of the conversation: comparative religion, no evidence or proof and the boat load ‘why’ questions – if there is a god why this or why that. Eventually I smile with that big ole ‘the cat that ate the canary grin’. When they ask why I am smiling I promise them one day THEY WILL MEET Jesus and know exactly what I am talking about, no doubt about it. Once you meet Jesus you will understand. Anyone being in the presence of God knows beyond a reasonable doubt there is a reaction to His presence. You bow before His sovereignty and can’t help but try to verbally express your awe and admiration – praise and worship! “Christ is Lord!”
    The moment I met Christ not only did this become an inarguable truth but it is a reality in my life. There is still I bunch I do not know and even more I may not be able to prove scripturally yet I know that all one need do is be before God for a moment and all these augments disappear and one will KNOW the truth. Thanks for prompting the revisiting of the alters in my life and another chance to thank Him for all He has done!!!!!!!
