What’s in the Name of Jesus? - Salvation

And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
— Acts 4:12

 

The name of Jesus has so much power! For too long we’ve underestimated the potency and power in that wonderful name! Don’t neglect the name of Jesus. Don’t leave it out after each prayer. SAY IT. WORSHIP IT. TRUST IT. In the next few days, we’re going to uncover how amazing the name of Jesus really is!

First and foremost, the name of Jesus is the only way we can be saved. The Bible says in Acts 4:12 that there’s salvation in NO OTHER. John 14:6 says “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” The name of Jesus gives us the access we need to God the Father (Ephesians 2:8). He’s the door we must enter for access to the Kingdom of God. In fact, John 10:9 says, “I am the gate. If anyone enters through Me, he will be saved. He will come in and go out and find pasture.”

The sacrifice of Jesus provided the power behind His name. Hebrews 10:19-22 says, “And so, dear brothers and sisters, we can boldly enter heaven’s Most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus. By his death, Jesus opened a new and life-giving way through the curtain into the Most Holy Place. And since we have a great High Priest who rules over God’s house, let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him. For our guilty consciences have been sprinkled with Christ’s blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water.” Hallelujah! 

That beautiful name gave us access to eternal life! Without the name of Jesus, we’d be in hell! But thanks be to God for giving His One and only Son! God the father sowed the only thing He had so that He could reap us, more children!

Only those who call on the name of Jesus and make Him Savior of their life can have unlimited access to His name. Romans 10:9 says, “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Jesus made it so EASY!

You can’t have access to the supernatural things of God without first declaring Jesus as Lord and Savior of your life. 

Pray this prayer out loud!

Heavenly Father, 

I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me of all my sins. Wash me with your precious blood. I believe you died for me and on the third day, you were raised back to life that I might be justified. I believe my sins are forgiven. I am a child of God. Thank you for freeing me from the power of sin. I receive Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Thank you for restoring me! Thank you for saving me from hell! In Jesus name, I pray! AMEN!
