DAY 13 FRIDAY: NOVEMBER 2020

USING THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST!

Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12).

The Name of Jesus Christ is the weapon for our salvation in life. A Christian should learn how to use the Name of Jesus Christ as a means for deliverance, healing, breakthroughs and salvation in life. In the opening text, the Bible tells us that there is no salvation in any other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. The Name of Jesus Christ is the weapon for our defense and authority in life. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to always use the Name of Jesus Christ as his weapon of defense in life. Hence, the Name of Jesus Christ is indeed the mandate and weapon of authority given to a Christian in life forever.

There is no power in heaven and earth that can resist or withstand the authority in the Name of Jesus Christ in life. That is why the Bible tells us in Philippians 2:10, “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth.” Therefore, the Name of Jesus Christ is of course greater and more powerful than the forces of darkness that rule the world in life. A Christian should learn to use the Name of Jesus Christ to overcome challenges and obstacles in life. The authority in the Name of Jesus Christ is indeed the supreme authority both in the human and divine affairs in life forever.

Apostle Peter knew the authority in the Name of Jesus Christ and he used it judiciously to heal the lame man at the Beautiful Gate when he said thus, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk” (Acts 3:6). The Bible recorded that the lame man stood up, walking, leaping and praising God in life. In fact, through the Name of Jesus Christ dead situations and obstacles could be revived and brought back to life. There is indeed power and authority in the Name of Jesus Christ; therefore, a Christian should learn to take advantage of it and utilize it fully to the glory of God in life. Therefore, the Name of Jesus Christ is of course the most ultimate and supreme Name that rules the entire heavens, earth and the abyss in life forever.

Daily Tip: Every Christian should learn to take advantage of the power and authority in the Name of Jesus Christ to rule the entire heavens, earth and the abyss in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him (Colossians 3:17).
