The Name That Is Above Every Name

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!
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.
Dear Father, I worship Christ Jesus, the Name That is Above Every Name. All glory to Him, that He was willing to become a man and die on a cross in humble obedience to You. My amazement of Him soars as I think of His supreme rank, attributes, power, majesty, lordship, authority, rule, dominion and works. I joyfully acknowledge all He is called in Your Scriptures that are part of the Name That is Above Every Name: Emmanuel, Kinsman-Redeemer, Leader and Commander, Fortress, Shepherd, King of Glory, Help and Deliverer, Strong Tower, Anointed One, Savior, Master, Lord of lords, High Priest, Light of the World, Prince of Peace, Chief Cornerstone, Chosen One, Potter, Son of God, Spring of Living Water, Messenger of the Covenant, Servant, Bread of Life, Mediator, Pearl of Great Price, Indescribable Gift and countless more! At the name of Jesus, the Name That is Above Every Name, my knees bow now, and my tongue acknowledges now that He is Lord, to Your great glory! May His whole Church ardently love His name, and joyfully speak His name to everyone we know. I pray that You will cleanse us of everything that is keeping us from having the same attitude of humility as He does. In Christ’s name I ask these things. Amen.
