A Name to Be Chosen
Proverbs 22:1- A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favor rather than silver and gold.
Philippians 2: 10-11-At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord.
Colossians 3:17- And whatsoever ye do in word or deed do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
It is good to choose the name of Jesus. Jesus is a special name. Jesus is the name of our Lord and Savior. The name of Jesus is anointed with the power of the Holy Spirit. It is good to have a good name than silver and gold. Having a good reputation is better than having riches. Through the blood of Jesus Christ we are made partakers and heirs to what belongs to Christ. When we are born again we are now in relationship with Jesus Christ. We are now married to Christ. The church as a whole or body of Christ is married to Jesus. Jesus is the bridegroom and the church is the bride. When people get married the woman usually changes her last name to that of her husband. Jesus is our spiritual husband or spouse. When we become Christians we take on the name of Christ. The name of Jesus Christ is a good name and should rather be chosen than great riches. Everything that we do should be done in this name, the name of Jesus Christ. Helping and loving people should be done in the name of Jesus. Whatever we speak should be done in the name of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is truly a name to be chosen.
