All In The Name
May the name of Jesus be visible in you.
A friend and his friend were shopping. His friend found a shirt he liked and looked to see the price. “How could a T-shirt cost $200.00?” was his indignant response. My friend said, “Look at the name. The value is in the name. I carry the name of Christ because I’m a Christian. That name gives me great value.”
How profound, I thought.
The way I use that name affects whether other people want the same for themselves.
Is there a demand for wanting to wear the name of Jesus?
If it looks good on me, there will be.
Philippians 2:9-11 New International Version (NIV)
9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
Romans 10:13New International Version (NIV)
13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
