“A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.”
Most people desire to have a good name among those who know them. While it is important to maintain a good testimony, whatever reputation we have on our own has only temporary value.
We can have a good name by choosing a Good Name much better than our own, the Name above every name, the Name Of Jesus.
His Name has purpose.
“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.”
His Name brings life to all who believe on Him.
“But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
His Name brings healing.
“Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.”
His Name will cause every knee to bow before Him.
“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
The Name of Jesus Christ makes a difference.
There is power in His Name.
There is provision in His Name.
There is protection in His Name.
We are saved by His Name.
We are secured by His Name.
We are supplied by His Name.
When we believe on His Name, we choose Him.
By choosing Him, we obtain an inheritance that money cannot buy. There is no end to the riches of His Wisdom and grace!
