Name Above All Names
“Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name.”
Philippians 2:9 (NIV)
As I grew up, movie theaters were a major place of gathering for teens. If friends saw each other there, one would save a seat for the other. When a local theater was refurbished, the campaign to replace the seats carried the name. “I’ll save you a seat.” Have you been invited to sit in church with a friend? When it happens to me, it always makes me feel special.
Because Jesus took on all our sins, God raised the Son and gave Him the seat next to Himself. He saved the most special place for the one who became Sin for us, the one who obeyed Him.
Because Jesus Christ is the name above all names, God’s children honor it.
