THE MOST POWERFUL NAME
No other name has more power than the name of Jesus! There is power in His name. His name brings healing, salvation, grace and mercy. Whenever you are in need, just call on the name of Jesus. The songwriter wrote, “How sweet the name of Jesus sounds in a believer’s ear! It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds, and drives away his fear” The scripture reference is Philippians 2:10 and reads in this manner.
“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,”
In this moving passage of scripture, Paul, the humble servant of the Lord speaks of the blessed name of Jesus. He begins this chapter by calling on God’s people to have the attitude of Christ. He tells them not to be selfish and think more of themselves than they should. Paul then talks of how Jesus gave up His divine privilege, taking the poison of a slave and humbled himself to die a prisoner’s death on the cross. God gave Him a name above all names – a place of honor. Every tongue shall declare that Jesus is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Whenever you call on that name, know that God has given Jesus Christ the name above all names. Never use His name in vain. Call on His name and remember His holiness. Give Him the reverence and the honor that belongs to Him. Thanks be unto God today that we can testify that there is power in His name.
