"There is Power in the Name of Jesus"
-the Source of Power for Here and Now
Based on Acts 3: 1-10
Theme: The Great Name
Synopsis:As Apostle Peter and John were about to enter the worship temple, they spot a man born crippled, sitting by the temple gate begging, asking for money --- and Peter says --- “I have no money” --- but in the name of Jesus Christ, of Nazareth, get up and walk.” And he got up and began to walk!
There is power in the name of Jesus Christ.
We were crippled, broken, and hopeless, --- like this man who was born crippled, broken, and hopeless. But, in the name of Jesus Christ, we were healed, restored and saved, --- like this man who was healed, restored and saved in the name of Jesus Christ – he has been given a new life – we have been given a new life.
There is no other name given to us – except the name above all names, Jesus, the Risen Christ. We gather in the name of Jesus Christ – we go out into the world in the name of Jesus Christ.
