There’s Something About That Name

[God] gave him the name
that is above every name.
    —Philippians 2:9

Eighteen-month-old Andrea—along with her parents—spent a week in Louisville, Kentucky, with her grandparents. When they returned to their Oklahoma home, Andrea kept joyfully saying, “Kentucky, Kentucky, Kentucky.”

There was something about that name that impressed the child. “Kentucky, Kentucky, Kentucky.”

It reminds me of a Bill and Gloria Gaither song:

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus; there’s just something about that name.
Master, Savior, Jesus, like the fragrance after the rain.
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, let all Heaven and earth proclaim
Kings and kingdoms will all pass away,
But there’s something about that name.

“[God] gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow . . . and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord” (Phil 2:9–11).

We end all our prayers in Jesus’ name.

Jesus. Let that name govern
everything you say and do today.
