The name of Jesus is above every name, whether on earth, in heaven, or under the earth! There is no name like the name of “Jesus”!
The name of Jesus reflects His person . . . He’s Wonderful, Counselor, Prince of Peace, Rose of Sharon, Light of the World, Saviour, Redeemer, Bread of Life, Shepherd, Messiah . . . and much, much more!
The name of Jesus reflects His passion . . . “we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities” (Hebrews 4:15)! In the name of Jesus we find love for the unlovely, joy for the downcast soul, peace for the fearful, longsuffering for the anxious, gentleness for the hurting, goodness for those in need, faith for the targets of the enemy’s attacks, meekness for the humble, temperance for those who are struggling . . . oh yes, Jesus, the Name above all names, the very essence of the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23).
The name of Jesus reflects His power . . . the power to forgive sins, to heal the sick, and to raise the dead. The power to move mountains, to cast out devils, to create worlds, to bless us with all spiritual blessings. Oh yes, the name of Jesus, full of power, full of might, full of authority.
The name of Jesus reflects His promise . . . He’s promised never to leave us nor forsake us and He’s promised to come back for His Bride, to take her home to be with Him forever!
“By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.” (Hebrews 13:15)
Make it a conscious effort to offer up to Him praise . . . and let it be the fruit of your lips CONTINUALLY. All it takes is to briefly reflect on His Name – His person, His passion, His power, and His promise. Praise Him . . . it’s so easy when you stop to think about the Name, the wonderful, blessed name that is above every other name, the name of Jesus.
Father, as I meditate on the person, the passion, power and the promise all reflected in Your name, help me have a greater revelation of Who You are as revealed in the Word of God. Lord, may my mouth be filled with Your praise . . . may my lips speak forth Your praise . . . CONTINUALLY! Amen!
