The Winter Olympics begin today. I love the idea of these games. So many nations come together. And for the most part, the Olympics have been a symbol of peace and unity among the nations…among the people of this world. And that is beautiful!
The Olympics are a staging ground to watch what the hard work and dreams of individual athletes, who are willing to sacrifice their time, energy, minds, bodies and wills, can accomplish in their chosen sports. What they have achieved is amazing! And they will receive recognition and honor in their own countries and around the world for their accomplishments. Their names will be exalted!
And yet after a number of years, even these dedicated, hard-working, amazing athletes will have their names forgotten by most of us. But that is not…and never will be…the fate of the name of JESUS…who gave all of Himself for all of us!!
…he humbled himself and became obedient to death—
even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
JESUS is the One and Only whose name will be eternally exalted among all peoples…among all nations!
In love, peace and purposeful passion, Sylane
