Chris Tomlin – Never lose sight


“Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11, NIV

Names are powerful. From birth, they give us our identity. They immediately tell others who we are. Throughout the Bible, names are important to Jesus. In fact, He was notorious for changing people’s names and then helping them live up to the name He gave them. Yet no name wields more power than that of Jesus Himself. Emmanuel, God with us. And through the ages, the names of the Father have become a source of strength for His children:

Shepherd.
Friend.
Savior.
Messiah.
Jesus.

Ask any longtime Christ follower, and they can likely tell you the name of the Lord that means the most to them and where they were when they learned the meaning and value of that particular name of God. The name of Jesus evokes a peace and a power like no other.

It’s through the name of Jesus that we find everlasting life. Romans 10:13 says, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

In His name we find salvation, freedom, and ultimate healing. It’s His name that we call in times of despair. It’s His name that we celebrate and revere in wonder and praise.

There is a name I call in times of trouble
There is a song that comforts in the night
There is a voice that calms the storm that rages
He is Jesus, Jesus

So much is wrapped up in that one name, and the longer we follow Christ, the more we discover that so much of ourselves is wrapped up in those five letters. He is the only one who can tell us who we are because we are His.

Yet culture will relentlessly try to redefine us, calling us names like:

Stupid.
Small.
Ugly.
Insignificant.
Not enough.

But culture holds no power over anyone who belongs to Jesus. The One who stills the wind and the waves knows your rightful name, and He calls you:

Precious.
Beloved.
Beautiful.
Priceless.
Mine.

Read: Philippians 2:9-11

Romans 10:13
