The name of Jesus has enormous power. Just utter it at the next office meeting, cocktail party, or bowling alley you attend and see what happens. People will usually either cheer or jeer.
Why is this? Is there something that special about that five-letter, two-syllable word? No. It’s that the person holding that name has been made Lord of heaven and earth by virtue of His resurrection from the dead. Therefore, any reference to Jesus is a reference to the One who is above every other name or level of authority. The highest ruler in every nation would still be subservient to the Lord of heaven and earth. Even all angels and other purely spiritual beings are subject to that name.
The name “Jesus” has power because of the title that’s been placed in front of it: “Lord.”
That’s why such a little name makes such a big difference.
