The Name of Jesus

My holy Name I will make known among my people.
Ezekiel 39:7
At the Name of Jesus every knee shall bow,
every tongue confess him King of glory now.
'Tis the Father's pleasure
       we should call him Lord,
who from the beginning was the mighty Word.

Humbled for a season to receive a Name
from the lips of sinners unto whom he came,
faithfully he bore it spotless to the last,
brought it back victorious,
       when from death he passed.

Christians, this Lord Jesus shall return again,
with his Father's glory, with his angel train;
for all wreaths of empire meet upon his brow,
and our hearts confess him King of glory now.
 Caroline M. Noel (1870)

Jesus prayed, I made your Name known to them, and I will make it known, so that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.
 John 17:26
Prayer after thinking about today's devotion:
We thank you, Lord God, for the gift of your Son whom you commanded to be called Jesus. Grant that we may so honor his Name on earth, that others may be led to him who alone is Lord and Savior.
 A New Zealand Prayer Book (Anglican)

After your own thanksgivings & petitions, close with the Lord's Prayer.
