​​​ Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.Phi l.2:9-11

There is a purpose attached to every individual name. Names are mostly for identification and sometimes a name is given based on a particular characteristic that one exhibits. Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved “Acts 4:12”. This verse reveals the power and the significance in the name of Jesus. The name of the lord is a strong tower, the righteous runs in and they are saved “Prv18:10

It is only in His name; can all believers find salvationand be saved. As believers of Christ, there should be nothing hindering us from calling His name. The name in this context means authority. For example,when we do something “in the name of Jesus” we mean that we do it by his authority (e.g. Luke 24:47, Acts 2:38, Acts 3:6). There is power in the name of Jesus that can break every chain of failure, rejection, sickness, guilt and of course death only if we can believe.

Jesus understood clearly what He was to face when He came to earth. He knew He would be separated from the Father. And He realised that an ill treatment and a brutal death reserved only for the worst of criminals awaited Him.

It’s true, Jesus could have saved Himself from such a painful death. If He had simply said, I’m not the Son of God, I’m just the son of a carpenter, they would have let Him go. Likewise, He was capable of calling upon all of the angels in heaven to come down and defend Him. With their power and might the earth would have easily been destroyed.

But Jesus didn’t do either of those things. Instead, Heobeyed his father and did as the Father asked, left behind the glory of heaven, humbled Himself and became a servant. He did it for you and for me, so we could live with Him forever. Because of His compassion and the great love he has for us, He gave Himself up to face such worse situation! And for that sacrifice, God rewarded him with the title, Heexalted Him and gave Him the name which is above all names “Phil 2:9”. He is the only one worthy of this title. He alone is worthy of our praise.

When our father in Heaven has exalted him above all His creations, shouldn’t we do the same? Jesus accomplished salvation and received the worship of all creation. At that name of Jesus, every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and in earth, and things under the earth. “Phil 2:10”.Even the winds and the sea bowed to himMatt 8:27

“There is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).He is the only Mediator between God and man
