...the Lord Jesus - our wonderful, merciful Savior

“Therefore God also has highly
exalted Him and given Him

the name which is above every name,"

• Jesus Christ is sufficient for creation (Col. 1:16-17), salvation (Heb. 10:10-12), sanctification (Eph. 5:26-27), and glorification (1 Jn. 3:2).

• So pure is He that there is no blemish, stain, spot of sin, defilement, lying, deception, corruption, or imperfection in Him (1 Pt. 1:18-20).

• There is no other God besides Him (Is. 45:5).

• He is the only begotten Son (Jn 1:14,18).

• All the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are in Him (Col. 2:3), all the fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily in Him (Col. 2:3, 9).

• He is heir of all things (Heb. 1:2).

• He created all things and all things were made by Him, through Him and for Him (Col. 1:16-17).

• He upholds all things by the word of His power (Heb. 1:3).

• He is the first-born of all creation (Col. 1:15).

"so that at the name of Jesus

of those who are in heaven
and on earth and under the earth,"

• He is the exact representation of God (Heb. 1:3).

• He is the only Mediator between God and man (1 Tim. 1:5).

• He is the Son that enlightens (Heb. 1:3), the Physician that heals (Lk. 4:23-24; 5:31), the Wall of Fire that defends (Ex. 13:21), the Friend that comforts (Jn. 15:14-15), the Pearl that enriches (Mt. 13:45-46), the Ark that supports (Gen. 6:18; Rev. 11:19) and the Rock to sustain under the heaviest of pressures (Deut. 32:18; 1 Cor. 10:4).

• He is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty on high (Acts 2:34; Heb. 1:3; 8:1).

• He is better than the angels (Heb. 1:4-14), better than Moses (Heb. 3:3); better than Aaron (5:1-10); better than Joshua (4:8); better than Melchizedek (7:1-3); better than all the prophets (Eph. 2:20; Heb. 1:1).

• He is greater than Satan (Lk. 4:1-12; Jn. 14:30), and stronger than death (1 Cor. 15:55; Heb. 2:14).

• He is the First and the Last (Rev. 1:17-18), the Lamb of God (Jn. 1:29), our peace (Eph. 2:14), our hope (1 Tim. 1:1), the Way, the Truth and the Life (Jn. 14:6).

• He is the Author and Finisher of our faith (Heb. 12:1-2), the Captain of our Salvation (2:10), the Champion (Is. 19:20), the Apostle and High Priest of our confession (Heb. 3:1).

• He is the Man of Sorrows (Is. 53:3).

"and that every tongue will confess
that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father."

-Philippians 2:9-11

• He is the Light (Jn. 1:7; 1 Jn. 1:5).

• He is the Son of Man (Mt. 20:28).

• He is the Vine (Jn. 15:5).

• He is the Bread of Life (Jn. 6:48).

• He is the Door (Jn. 10:7).

• He is both Lord and Christ (Acts 2:36; Phil. 2:10-13).

• He is Prophet, Priest and King (Heb. 1:1-3), our Sabbath rest (Heb. 4:9), our Righteousness (Jer. 23:6; 1 Cor. 1:30), the Rock of Salvation (Ps. 62:2; 89:26; 95:1), the Eternal Spirit (Heb. 9:14), the Ancient of Days (Dan. 7:9), the Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace (Is. 9:6),

Steve, I'm looking for something that talks about "personal rights" and the Christian. I hold that there is no time we can selfishly insist on personal rights in light of Jesus' humble servanthood. Do you have any material on that? Maybe you've published something in the past ... I'm a new reader to your blog.
