to the highest place … and gave him the name that is greater than any other name.

Do you believe Jesus of Nazareth has the greatest name, the highest value, the best brand in the universe? Or do you see some other person as being a cut above?

I hope and pray that you and I will know as our go-to person the One who truly has the preeminent name.
