THE NAME OF JESUS
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 NIV
When Jesus went back to the Father, He left His name and His Spirit to the church. Whenever the name of Jesus mentioned by faith; the Spirit of God came to confirm it by miracles, signs and wonders. Apostles of Jesus used the name of Jesus to perform miracles, healings and cast out devils.
Jesus Himself before He ascended to the Father said these words: And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”(Mark 16:17-18)
This authority of the name of Jesus has been passed down from generation to generation of believers in the body of Christ. Whoever believed in the name of Jesus; saw the miracle working power that came with it. The name of Jesus has been changing the lives of millions of people throughout the history; and it's changing now, and it will continue changing people until the end of the age.
This morning, I want to encourage you to pray in the name of Jesus. If you have any kind of needs in your life or any kind of problems right now; then that will be a good opportunity for you to use the name of Jesus to pray for that particular needs or problems.

If you feel like things of this life are depressing you and you don't know what to do; then it's about time to pray in the name of Jesus and fight against spirit of depression that kept you down for quite some time now. May the Lord help you to remember to use His name whenever necessary it needed to be used.
