The name above every name

THE NAME ABOVE EVERY NAME

 (First part)

Memory verse (Phil 2: 9-11) “ Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father ”.

Everything living or non-living has a name. Stones, plants, animals, diseases and sicknesses, problems etc all have names. If you have a problem in your life it has a name. If you have a sickness in your life, it has a name. If you have any property you possess in your life, it has a name. You have a name. All human being we know them by their names.

Names help us to identify people or distinguish people. There’re names given to us by our parent, all parents give their children names. There are names we earn by our achievements or things we do. There are people who are called drunkards, because they drink, murderers because they are killers etc. these are names that are earned. THESE CAN BE GOOD OR BAD. Those who do good things earn good name. When you hear somebody talk about Billy Graham, you simply see a man who touched his generation by the gospel of Christ, but when you talk about Judas Iscariot, everybody know what kind of image he/she gets about him.

God also gives names, He gave Abram a name of Abraham, He named Sarai Sarah, He named Jacob Israel, Jesus named Simon Peter etc. But when God came to His Son Jesus because of what he did (Phil2: 5-11), He gave him a name that is above every name. As I said, what you do give you a name. Your positions give you a name. What Jesus did no one has ever and will ever do. God exalted Jesus above everything living or non living, in heaven on earth and under the earth, because JESUS humbled himself like none has ever do. He was God and he chose to become man, when he was in the midst of men, he became a servant not a master, He loved us to the point of dying for us, when it came to dying he chose to die the shameful death on the cross. None has ever done this; Therefore God exalted him to sit at his right hand, made him Lord of Lords, he has given him a name that is above every name, God has put everything under his feet, every knee bows at the name of Jesus, God has given him all authority in heaven and in the earth.
