“And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all” (Acts 3:16).Text — Acts 3:11-16
“What’s in a name? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” This famous line used by William Shakespeare in his play, Romeo and Juliet, implies that names are irrelevant. What matters most is the intrinsic quality of an individual. One may bear a good name and be a bad person. Our names were chosen by others, especially, our parents before our real characters were known. To a great extent, Shakespeare was right.
However, in the case of Jesus Christ, the story is different. The name of Jesus was chosen even before He was born. And His name is symbolic. It is a name that signifies His office, His ministry and His authority. There is power in His name. Through the name of Jesus, prayers are answered, sicknesses and diseases are healed, demons are cast out, problems are solved, and victory over sin, fears and failures are received. One day, at the mention of that name, every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus is Lord. Faith in the name of Jesus is the password you need for your miracles. Believe!
There is power in the name of Jesus
