When Jesus prayed for us in John 17, he asked the Father “since I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world; Holy Father, keep them in your name, the name which you have given me”. Jesus added that He was not praying that the Father would take us out of the world but that we would thrive in the world yet not be of the world. That means we are to be like passengers-in-transit; waiting for the connecting flight to take us to our final destination – heaven.
Unlike other refugees, He did not leave us comfortless to fend for ourselves in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation. Rather He has prayed that the Father would keep us in His name - the name he gave him - the name Jesus Christ. It is through this name that all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, dominions, rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him - Col 1:16. His name is above every other connection we can use to open doors because it is above every name that can be named – Eph 1:21.
No wonder Paul said that whatsoever we do in word or deed; do all in the name of the Lord Jesus - Col_3:17. This is because when you accepted Jesus Christ in your heart your citizenship changed. You lost your earthly passport and you were marked and sealed by the Holy Spirit as a citizen of heaven. So in order to make your stay on earth bearable as a refugee, heaven has bestowed on you the rights to exercise the great name of JESUS to transact your earthly business; because it is the name by which the whole of God’s family in heaven and earth is named - Eph_3:15.
So you are not on your own because now Jesus counts you as His own. He is your refuge bearing you up with His everlasting arms together with angels who protect and minister to your needs. Moreover, He has also filled you with His Holy Spirit so that you can communicate on the same network heaven uses, without having to pay roaming-charges while on earth. Do not let your heart be troubled down here; just use the name of the Jesus. It is a strong tower where you can run for refuge and be safe. Make it also your confession because that name is also a boarding pass. If you hold fast onto it until the Lord appears, He will use it to evacuate you away in a rapturous journey home.
