Use The Name of Jesus

Seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked to receive alms. And Peter directed his gaze at him, as did John, and said, ‘Look at us.’ And he fixed his attention on them, expecting to receive something from them. But Peter said, ‘I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!’ 16 And His name—by faith in His name—has made this man strong whom you see and know, and the faith that is through Jesus has given the man this perfect health in the presence of you all.’” ~ Acts 3:3-6; 16

They stopped and looked at him. Why? Because they were looking for faith. They were looking to see if the man had faith or doubt. The man came expecting a miracle. Look at verse 5. He looked at them expecting a miracle.

Do we expect to see every time we pray? Or have our prayers just become routine to make us feel like we did something? All Peter said was” in Jesus name get up and walk,” He didn’t say some long drawn out prayer filled with big words and few tears. He said 8 words and the man was healed.

What does that matter? They understood the power of the Name of Jesus. They knew that when they spoke in Jesus’ name, it would come to pass. Their faith was strong. They knew their God. They knew His power. They knew His authority. They knew Him. How much time do we spend with God? Not just making requests, but actual communion with Him? faith comes by heaving. And hearing by the Word of God. Why? Because you get to know Him. If you know Him, your faith will be boosted, It only takes the faith of a mustard seed to move mountain. It only takes a small amount of faith to move mountains, yet we don’t even have enough faith to heal a headache.

Jesus is calling us out onto the water, but our lack of faith is sinking us. Jesus is the name above all names. He is the name that saves. That heals. That delivers, yet we don’t use it nor have faith in it like we should. Jesus said we would do greater things than He did. keep in mind He raised the dead. So where are these miracles? Once we have the faith we need, we will see the miracles take place.

Peace. Love. Go forth and Use The Name of Jesus.
