“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Philippians 2:9-11 KJV

Lydia Odell Baxter wrote one of my favorite hymns “Precious Name”.  I love these words in this inspiring hymn.  “Take the Name of Jesus with you, Child of sorrow and of woe, It will joy and comfort give you; Take it then, where’er you go.”  Yes, the precious Name of Jesus gives us joy and comfort.

The question we need to ask ourselves is “Do I make Jesus happy by my actions and my words”?  We can fool others but we can’t fool Jesus because He can see in our heart and He knows if we really love Him or if we are just telling people we love Him.  Remember, actions speak louder than words.

I found this definition about actions in The Cambridge English Dictionary “what you do is more important than what you say, because the things you do show your true intentions and feelings:”.  We can say we love Jesus but what are we doing to prove that we love Him?  Jesus deserves our service and love.
