Pastor’s message: Greetings in the name of Jesus
Over and over again in Scripture we read, “In Jesus’ name,” or “In his name.”
The devils were powerless because of his name (Luke 10:17).
The demons were cast out in his name (Mark 16:17-18).
Healing occurred in his name (Acts 3:6, 3:16, 4:10).
Salvation comes in his name (Acts 4:12, Rom. 10:13).
We are to baptize in his name (Matt. 28:19).
We are justified in his name (1 Cor. 6:11).
Everything we do and say is done in his name (Col. 3:17).
Yet our ongoing challenge as Christians is to fight the temptation to believe that we have the power within ourselves to change our circumstances.
This week as we gather we will be continuing our Stewardship focus and examine how it is that we need the name of Jesus to help us reshape our hearts to fulfil our hearts true desires.
I look forward to gathering with you on Sunday to praise together the name of our Lord,
