On this edition of The Bellator Christi Podcast, Pastor Brian Chilton continues his series in the book of Acts. Acts 3 recounts Peter’s healing of the lame man who sat at the Beautiful Gate in the temple complex in Jerusalem. One finds that there are certain things represented by names that are powerless to help us in our daily lives. In stark contrast, one finds great power and help in the name of Jesus. Join us as we ask the question, What’s in a Name?
What’s In a Name?
- What are some powerless trusted names?
- PLACES are powerless (3:3-4, 8-9). Temple and Beautiful Gate.
- MONEY is powerless (3:4-5).
- TIME is powerless (3:1-2). The time of prayer and the age of the man (40).
- What power is found in Jesus’s name?
- The power of IDENTITY is found in Jesus’s name (3:6).
- The power of HOLINESS is found in Jesus’s name (3:14).
- The power of LIFE is found in Jesus’s name (3:15-16).
- The power of SALVATION is found in Jesus’s name (3:17-26).
