“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.
The Bible says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). Our text centers on the healing of a forty-year-old man, lame from birth, by Peter and John through faith in the name of Jesus. As a beggar, he requested arms from Peter and John, who through faith in the name of Jesus, perfectly healed him. What a practical demonstration of faith by the duo! This is a challenge to Christian youths.
Beloved, E. W. Kenyon asks, “Have you realized that you have the name of Jesus in your care and that the name has power even today to heal the sick, save the lost, and bring life, joy and gladness to human hearts? And yet you have never used it!” The name of Jesus is above all names. No problem stands at the mention of His name by faith. Like Peter and John, God can use you to change the plight of distressed youths. You too can triumph over life’s challenges through faith in the name of Jesus.
The Name of Jesus is above all names
Be bold and do exploits by faith in the name of Jesus.
Prayer for today
