Your Weekly Dose of Gospel
...the Name which is above every name

Phil. 2:5 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, Phil. 2:6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, Phil. 2:7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Phil. 2:8 Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Phil. 2:9 For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, Phil. 2:10 so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, Phil. 2:11 and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Acts 4:10 let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—by this name this man stands here before you in good health. Acts 4:11 “He is the STONE WHICH WAS REJECTED by you, THE BUILDERS, but WHICH BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone. Acts 4:12 “And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”

What a concept. The Gospel . . . completely from Scripture! How refreshing!

Jesus himself is the Gospel, isn't he?
