Using His Wonderful Name!

Posted on: March 10, 2011

When women marry, we usually take our new husband’s name.  With that name comes many privileges.  We are called Mrs., we are identified with him, we use his bank account; in other words, everything that is his becomes ours also.  And that works both ways;  everything that is ours becomes his.

When we take the name of Jesus Christ, by accepting Him as our savior, everything He is and has becomes ours, and everything we are and have become His.  It is truly like a marriage.  But think about it for a moment.  He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  He made everything.  He is the mighty God.  What He gives us is so much more than what we can give Him.  The Lord has given us His power and authority over all darkness and evil, even over sickness.  In Acts, chapter 3 of the Bible, Peter and John came across a man who had been lame from birth.  Peter said, “We have no gold or silver to give you, but what we have we will give you”.  In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk”.  The man was healed instantly.  There is power in the name of Jesus and He has given that name to us to use in our lives on earth.  We who abide in His Spirit, walk in His love and use His mighty name.

It’s like the Lord has given us a blank check.  We are to use that check for good and to help others.  He has signed His name at the bottom and it is legal.  That check might be the gift of prayer for others, or healing in your hands, or a smile and a helping hand for someone in need.

A blank check.  Wow!  Lord, help me to spend wisely the blessings you have given to me.  Show where there is need of any kind, so that I may help.  Lord, bring people into my path who need to hear about Your great love.  Help me to touch someone today, because I love You!
