Power in the Name

Power in the Name

Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” (Acts 3:6)

When Peter and John encounter a lame beggar outside the temple, they demonstrate the authority and power available to all believers through the name of Jesus.

Though they possessed no money to assist him, they offered far greater riches through Christ – miraculous healing in an instant!

Expect the Impossible

Jesus assured His followers, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move” (Matthew 17:20-21).

As we call upon Christ’s name in faith according to His will, we open the door for the supernatural, limitless resources of heaven to meet earthly impossibilities.

This exciting spiritual truth applies to our physical bodies, relationships, jobs, ministry efforts, cities and nations. Through invoking Jesus’ authority in the unseen realms, we gain access to His resurrection miracle-working power.

“God’s power is always available where the name of Jesus is proclaimed.” Derek Prince

Let us call upon His name with bold expectancy today!

An Open Invitation

In Acts 3, Peter extends an invitation to the gathered crowd who are astonished at the healing they’ve witnessed.

He urges them to repent, turn to God and times of refreshing will come (v.19). The healing of the lame man was intended to point to spiritual restoration.

Similarly, God wants miracles to draw people to Himself – the ultimate source of life and power.

As conduits of His grace, we are privileged to bring the refreshment, renewal and salvation found solely in Jesus. May the power unleashed through Christ’s name open many eyes to His worth.
