There is no real evangelization without the explicit proclamation of the Name and person of Jesus Christ and the salvation that is in Him alone. Therefore, mention the Name of Jesus Christ in your testimony of what He has done for you and Who He is: Son of God Most High, Saviour and Lord. Mention His Name for it is the Name above all names as Philippians 2:6-11 declares.
In Acts 3:6-8 we read: “But Peter said, “I have no silver or gold, but what I have I give you; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, stand up and walk.” And he took him by the right hand and raised him up; and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong. Jumping up, he stood and began to walk, and he entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God. All the people saw him walking and praising God.”
Beloved, this miraculous cure demonstrates the power in the Name of Jesus, wonder-working power. The cure of this man crippled from birth was a sign and wonder giving Peter an open door to Mention the Name of Jesus and lead a multitude to saving faith in Jesus as we read in the rest of the chapter.
As Peter proclaimed in Acts 4:12, “There is no salvation in anyone else, for there is no other name in the whole world given to men by which we are to be saved.” Mention the Name, Jesus!’ There is power in His Name to save, set free, restore, heal, make whole, transform lives and make sinners holy.
The Name ‘Jesus’ be on your lips and in your heart.
Mention the Name: Jesus!
Jesus is the Name above all names. Demons tremble at the mention of the Name of Jesus on the lips of a believer who truly knows the power of the Name and the Blood of Jesus, that He has been given all authority in heaven and earth. All the forces of hell could not prevent His resurrection victory, His glorious victory, taking captivity captive. In and with Him believers were raised up and seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus our Lord. All glory to Jesus!
Mention the Name of Jesus, not as a habit or a test, but with the absolute faith that His Name is all-powerful. Speak Jesus’ mighty Name and tear down the strongholds of darkness; nullify the schemes of the enemy. Cancel all wicked plans against yourself, your family, your community and all within the circles of influence and the territories assigned to you. Victory in Jesus!
Mention Jesus’ mighty Name, the only name by which we are to be saved and set free. Speak His Name with boldness and authority. Resist the devil and he will flee from you at the Name of Jesus.
