On Sunday our Youth Pastor, Pastor Manasseh talked about the name of Jesus which is not just an ending to a prayer, but reminded us that that there is power in that name.
- Did you know that the name of Jesus get’s God’s attention?
- Did you know it’s the one main protocol required to get into God’s presence?
- Did you know God has given him a name that’s above all other names?
- Did you know that Jesus will become Lord and Savior to all who invite him into their heart?
The Name Above All Other Names
Let’s see what the bible has to say about the name of Jesus:
Philippians 2:5–11 (NLT) – “You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.
Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to.
Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being.
When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross.
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 confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Ephesians 1: 3-10 (NLT) – “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.”
Colossians 1:19-20 (NLT) – “For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself.
He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.”
