Bastian Baker is a Swiss musician who has been the opening act for Country music superstar, Shania Twain. He made this amazingly insightful comment about her - he said that he knew her name, but he did not know the magnitude of the name. Then he went on to explain that he did not know about the awards she had won - the Grammys, ACMA's, AMA's, Billboard Awards, Canadian Awards, etc.
Wow - what a great lesson for those who know the Name of Jesus. We sometimes forget the magnitude of the Name. Here are some verses that demonstrate the awesomeness of Jesus' Name.
Acts 3:6 - Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.”
Luke 10:17 - The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.”
Philippians 2:9-11 - 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.
Do you know the magnitude of Jesus' Name ? There is Salvation in the Name of Jesus. There is healing and deliverance in the Name of Jesus. There is peace and joy in the Name of Jesus. There is victory in the Name of Jesus. What a powerful Name it is.
We reverence the Name of Jesus. We pray in the Name of Jesus. We thank God for the Name of Jesus. Blessings, Pastor
