In Jesus' Name

Acts 4:1-22

Peter and John heal a crippled man in Acts 4:1-22. This creates quite a stir with the Jewish leaders, so they arrest Peter and John and then question them about the incident asking them "by what power or by what name did you do this?" (vs. 7). Peter boldly responds "let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead--by him this man is standing before you well" (vs. 10).

When we pray, we pray in Jesus' name. That's because Jesus' name is the only name that has the authority to get us to God.

Take some time today to consider the incredible privilege we have of praying to God the Father in Jesus' name. What does this privilege mean to you? Are you taking full advantage of it? Tami W.

Jesus You mean everything to me and I will continue to thank You for all eternity! ...Give praise to our God!!! We are nothing without God, thank You for giving me Your life. I love You Jesus Christ!!!

We're told several times in scripture that when Jesus ascended back into heaven, He sat down at the right hand of the Father. High Priests never sat down, because their work was never completed. But, Jesus' work of providing cleansing for sin is done, so He has sat down.

Now, He intercedes to the Father on our behalf. What a privilege to know that, based on the authority of His name, we hzve access to Heaven's throne room.

If I am ashamed to speak the name of Jesus than Jesus can be ashamed to speak my name to His Father. It is only because of Jesus I have eternal life. Because of Jesus sacrifice I can have total forgiveness. It's all because of Jesus Christ. Thank you Jesus for setting me free.

Do a word search for "Listen" in the Bible.

You find many verses were God will not Listen to our prayers, or accept our burnt offerings because of our disregard for repenting from sin.

Like the churches that continue to celebrate alternate lifestyles from the Pulpits and church leadership.

Grace and Peace , until Judgment Day
