His name is above every other name; His name is beautiful, powerful, glorious, and majestic. At His name, every knee will bow, 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, did not consider equality with him something to be taken advantage of. Instead, He came as a servant in human likeness, and He lived a pure and spotless life, 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 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 shout of praise and adoration to Jesus today, give Him thanks for all He has done. Wonderful God, Prince of Peace, Everlasting Father, we adore you today.
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.Philippians 2:9-11 (NIV)
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.Isaiah 9:6 (NIV)
