When Parents/Guardians Are Equipped to Lead Their Children Biblically
SBC 2022 - Part 1 (Annual Meeting, the Presidency, & the CBN)

Name Above All Names

On Sunday I preached the final sermon in our recent series through the book o Jude. In closing, I referenced a framed poster in my office that my parents gave me back in the 1990s. It has printed on it the heading "Name Above All Names" and then lists every book of the Bible and how Jesus Christ is revealed in each one. These words are actually the lyrics from a song by Don Moen in his musical presentation titled "God With Us." In the day when choirs and choral presentations were prevalent, many churches presented this musical.

There have been other songs by different artists throughout the years who have presented songs with similar themes. While only the Bible is inerrant, the message in this portion of one song points toward the immutable Word and reminds us that Jesus is not a biblical character who appeared first in a cave in Bethlehem, but as the second person of the Trinity is fully God and sovereign over all. God is present in every book of the Bible, Old and New Testaments, and Christ is revealed as the Savior, Redeemer, Messiah, Sovereign Lord, and Christ.

Some have asked for a copy of what I read, so I provide it here in this article and also as a downloadable PDF file. The musical is titled "God With Us" and was written and produced by Don Moen and released in 1993. The copyright is held by Integrity Music.
