Dearly Beloved, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our God, who created and formed us and who never ever forgets us. The blessed word that God has given for you, today is from the book of John 1:12, “But as many as received Him to them He gave the right to become the children of God to those who believe in His name.”
This message is mainly to let you know how important it is to believe in the name of Jesus. 2000 years ago, while Jesus lived in this world, many came to Jesus to receive blessings from Him. Some were healed, some received sight, while some came for deliverance as they were demon possessed. But in the midst of all this they were some who came to accuse, ridicule and scorn Him, but the name of Jesus is the most beautiful of all names, in the ear of the believer, for there is no other name in heaven or on earth that has the power to seek and to save that which was lost.
Trusting in the name of Jesus is accepting Him as the Son of God. It is to believe that Christ’s death, burial, and Resurrection procured our salvation. It is trusting, by faith, that we are born again into the family of God. It is to believe that Jesus took the punishment that we deserve, by His death on the cruel cross, we have been declared righteous by God. And as many as received Him, to them He gave the power to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name.”
‘To believe in His name’, does not simply mean to believe that Jesus lived, as a historical figure. ‘To believe in His name’, means to accept everything that the Bible teaches about the Lord Jesus Christ – and that He is the Word of God made flesh, Who dwelt among us and died as the sacrificial substitute for the sin of mankind. ‘To believe in His name’, is to believe that Jesus is the Creator of the world, to believe in His name’, is to rely on Him for the redemption of our soul, rather than relying on our own good works for the salvation of God. It is only when we believe in His name that He gives us the right to be called His children.
The privilege of becoming a child of God comes with our desire, to receive Him through faith. Faith in Christ comes by hearing the word of God, and believing that Christ was crucified, was buried, and rose again. And when we believe by faith – then God the Father grants us the right to become His child.
There is only one way to be saved – “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.” Today is the day of Salvation. He will heal you of all your disease. He will forgive you of all your sins. He will renew your mind and make you a new creation. And when we make this God our Father, then we become His children. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved. Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame. So believe in the Name Of Jesus and be saved right now. God Bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Dear Lord we thank You for teaching us through this message the importance of believing on the Name of Jesus. For all knees will bow before Your Highly Exalted Name. We Thank You Lord for making us your children. Help us to rely on You alone and not in our own good works. Guide us step by step. In Jesus’ name we pray.
