Chapter CONTEXT from MHCC: The apostle proceeds to further exhortations to several duties, to be like-minded, and lowly-minded, which he presses from the example of Christ (v. 1-11), to be diligent and serious in the Christian course (v. 12, 13), and to adorn their Christian profession by several suitable graces (v. 14-18). He then concludes with particular notice and commendation of two good ministers, Timothy and Epaphroditus, whom he designed to send to them (v. 19-30)
How many times have you heard someone say is Jesus’s name this or In Jesus’s name that. We often end prayers that way, we rebuke satan and all sorts of things “In Jesus’ Name” but is that truly biblical?
Until recently I had not thought much about it then as I was reading Philippians 2 again it struck me that Paul says it is not Jesus but the name “Lord” that makes mankind fall down and confess. Jesus was the earthly name given to the Christ’s child, and “Lord” is the name v.9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: given by the Father above all others.
Is Jesus more than Savior is He Lord of your life today?
