TODAY'S WORD 4U 2DAY
‘Then Jesus…said, ”All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.’’’‘Matthew 28:18 NIV
AT HIS NAME
If you’re into pop music, do you have the Bieber Fever or prefer to take the anti–bieber-biotics? Do you go gaga over Lady Ga Ga or just want to pok’er face? We may have differences of opinions, but there are certain names we hear that make us buzz with excitement. We spend big bucks to check out their latest film or get our groove on at their next concert. We may even queue up for hours to catch just a glimpse of them.
Some people can make us go doo-lally. But can you imagine someone’s introduction leaving people horizontal? That’s exactly what happened to a whole group of men. They went seeking out the ‘man of the moment,’, the guy everybody wanted to meet. And when they finally met, the guy introduces himself and they all fell flat on their faces! The men were trained, tough soldiers and the man was Jesus. They were seeking to arrest Him – they were the best of the regiment, armed and dangerous, but simply by stating who He was, He sent these guys tumbling. Go check it out in John 18:2–6.
Philippians 2:10 tells us; ‘…at the name of Jesus every knee should bow’ – and if they don’t today, they will someday soon.
Make a conscious effort to talk about Jesus today, see what different reactions you get when people hear His name – but never forget the power of it!
