Philippians 2:9 -11
Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Series: Jesus’ Exclusivity in Salvation
Today we’re going to speak a little bit more about the name of Jesus.
- The Name of Jesus is the only Name in which is salvation. It is the Name above every other name. There is absolutely no other provision that is made available to us except through the Name of Jesus.
- The most powerful name.
Let us visualize this point – There are so many names right from when Adam started giving names to the animals, birds, trees- all the species that is living, until now. Every church has a name, every organization has a name, every company has name, every home nowadays has a name, every person has a name. Now God comes by to tell us, that there is a Name above all else, a Name elevated above everybody else. Now all these other names in the world- every one- has to bow their knee to the name of Jesus. Every tongue has to confess to this Name and declare that Jesus Christ is Lord over all.
- This is a prophetic word over all of humanity, over all living beings, that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God.
When we look around, we see people cursing Jesus, swearing with the name of Jesus, taking Jesus’ Name in vain. But there’s going to come a day when every person is going to bow down to the Name of Jesus.
- The only question is- will we do it willingly now, or will we be forced to do it when it will be too late?
Make the choice to do so willingly.
- Every morning when we wake up, let’s make it a practice to go on our knees and tell Jesus that He is our Lord, bow our knees to his Name, declare him the Lord over our lives- even as we begin the day- that He is the Lord over our travel, our life, our living, our finances, our love, our conversations, over everything.
When we do it willingly, it has the capacity to open up our life to the Person of Jesus- the greatest Name above all names- giving space to Him to invade our life and cause in us a distinction from the world and to bring life and light into our life! As we confess, the love of God is going to come and flood, the peace of God is going to come and flood every area of our lives.
