Isn’t it amazing when God stitches a theme into your day? You just know He’s trying to get a message to you when everywhere you turn, you bump into the same information. It blows my mind that he cares enough to keep trying over and over again to get it into our thick skulls!

Early this morning, a friend sent me a tiny audio snippet of a pastor from Pennsylvania sharing a devotional about the name of Jesus. Then when I went to read my Bible this morning, my eyes fell on scriptures talking about the name of Jesus. And when I opened up the book I was reading, guess what it was talking about on the very page I left off at? Yep – the name of Jesus. Then I turned on my iPod. Guess what the first song spoke about? You see where this is going, right? Yes, Jesus.

With this theme stitched into my day, I was thanking Jesus for what his name means to you and me. I began putting his name above everything I could think of. Take a moment and go with me here, I encourage you to read this out loud. We can do it together and it will stir your faith:

Jesus, the name above all names…

Jesus, the name above loneliness.

Jesus, the name above chest pain.

Jesus, the name above a bad habit.

Jesus, the name above a toxic relationship.

Jesus, the name above a horrible toothache.

Jesus, the name that everything on heaven and earth bows to.

Philippians 2:10 says, Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

“Jesus” – his name means savior. He saves you from all this above and more.

Lifeguards Have The Will to Save 

I heard about this guy who is a lifeguard. He was asked if he’d saved many lives this summer, and he reported how many lives he had “saved.”

His friend said, “Your job must be exciting!”

The lifeguard said, “Nothing’s more exhilarating or terrifying or fulfilling than plunging into cold water, knowing someone’s life depends on me,” he said. “Nothing makes my heart pound like that. It’s the best feeling in the world, to burst through the waves with all my strength to pull people to safety, sometimes even against their will if they’re panicking. I wish I could do it all the time.”

Jesus, Your Personal Lifeguard

Know what? There is nothing more exciting to Jesus than to “save” you from your day or “save” you from your circumstances, and especially “save” you from your sin. He’s standing by. He’s a life preserver and will “save” you from everything nipping at your heels today.

So, what will you do with the Name of Jesus?

Put it above everything else!
