Take a moment with a piece of paper and pen or pencil and write down all the names of Jesus you can think of in both the Old and New Testament without opening your Bible. You might be surprised at how many you can remember.
It wasn’t long after the Holy Spirit came and filled the hundred and twenty that they immediately found opportunities to minister in the name of Jesus. It was the same name the angel of the Lord gave to Joseph and Mary before His birth; “you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21). The power to heal a lame man was not in Peter and John, but “in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk” (Acts 3:6).
From this healing moment, persecution rose up against these disciples of Jesus. When they were asked “by what power or by what name did you do this? Peter filled with the Holy Spirit said to them…let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—by him this man is standing before you well” (Acts 4:10).
That was not all that Peter had to say about this great and glorious name; “This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone. 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 4:11–12).
Let us not forget that by this name, Jesus, people are both saved and held accountable for what they do with Him. We give people the glorious name for salvation. He will hold them accountable.
