The name of Jesus is the sweetest and most lovely name in the universe because it is the creator's name - who made everything beautiful in His time (Ecc 3:11)! His creation is still exceedingly beautiful, aside from man's corruptions of it, and so Jesus must necessarily be the coalescence of all beauty - and so His wonderful name conveys the excellence and eminence of all beauty. Doctrinally, every individual Christian within the church body is privileged to breathe every 'utterance' and to do every 'deed' we do in the precious name of JESUS CHRIST (Col 3:17). Finally, we are saved in Jesus' name (Act 4:12), we're baptized in Jesus' name (Mat 28:19), we preach in Jesus' name (Luk 24:47), and we gather in Jesus' Name (Mat 18:20). Hence we are called "Austin Gatherings in Jesus' Name". Hallelujah, what a name!
