God exalted him . . . and gave him
the name that is above every name.
Elvis, Cher, Oprah: celebrities so well-known they are recognized by a single name.
But there is one name that is exalted above every other: Jesus. His earthly parents were told to name him “Jesus [the Lord saves], because he will save his people from their sins” (Mt 1:21).
“God . . . gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow . . .” (Phil 2:9, 10).
Grab a hymnal and sing it . . . or pull it up online and sing along.
Jesus, Thy name I love,
All other names above,
Jesus my Lord!
There is a name I love to hear,
I love to sing its worth;
It sounds like music in my ear,
The sweetest name on earth.
Jesus! In your heart and on your tongue.
