Greetings in the name of Jesus.
Oh, what a precious name. Acts 4:10-12 talks about that name. The 12th verse says, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
Philippians 2:9-11 says, “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
“And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Once we become born again, we take on the name of Jesus, and there is a power in that name. In Acts the third chapter we read about a lame man that was brought daily to the temple asking for alms, but when Peter and John came and saw him, they said for him to look upon them.
Verse 6 says, “Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee; In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.”
Verse 7 says, “And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.”
Remember, the Lord is with us. Psalms 23:4 — “I will fear no evil: for thou art with me.”
