Awhile back, we bought a new washer and dryer for our home. When we went to install it, though, we discovered that a part was missing. A part that was essential.
After calling the store, we learned that we would have to pay for the part if we wanted it. Even though it should have came with the machine to begin with. The sales people were rude and kept hanging up on us.
We lodged a complaint through the company’s online form, and within forty_eight hours, the district manager told us it would be on the truck and would be delivered to us free of charge.
However when the truck came, they knew nothing of this conversation we had with the district manager. The moment we mentioned his name, though, everyone bent over backwards to accommodate us.
His name was the key to getting things done with that company. It was the magic word. The password.
For us as Believers, we have a name that is our password with God. It is the name of Jesus.
Jesus’ Name is the only Name you can call upon and be saved, be forgiven, be healed, be whole.
God has exalted Jesus’ Name above all else. Above the name of sickness. Above the name of disease. Above the name of debt. Above the name of marriage problems. Above the name of mental issues.
If it has a name, it must bow to the Name of Jesus (Philippians 2:10).
Jesus died for us. He took our sins on His sinless body. He took our sicknesses on His healed body. But not only did Jesus redeem us from every curse of the law, but in essence, He also said, “If you have any other problems, if you need anything, ask my Father. Make sure you tell Him I sent you.”
He gave us the right to use His Name–to pray, to be saved, to be healed, to pray for others to be healed, to ask for whatever we need.
Every time you pray and say “In The Name Of Jesus” or “In Jesus’ Name,” don’t just say the words. Stop and think about what Jesus has done for you.
Stop and take a moment and praise God for what Jesus did because Jesus didn’t have to do it. And if He didn’t, where would we be? On a train headed for hell.
