Power in Jesus’ Name

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 4:12)

There was a missionary to India by the name of E. P. Scott. God placed it on his heart to penetrate an Indian tribe with the Gospel. Even though it was one of the most violent tribes in all of India, he went without any weaponry. He went alone because he knew that God had called him by faith to go. Even if it would cost him his life, he was willing to sacrifice it, to share the Gospel.

As he entered that area, before he could even get to their first village, he was surrounded by warriors. The warriors all around him had spears, and they were about to take his life. He had no weapon and he had no idea what to do. He grabbed his violin case, opened it up, and placed the violin to his chin. He closed his eyes, thinking that the next time he opened his eyes, that he would be seeing Jesus.

He began to sing and play the hymn, All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name. “All hail the power of Jesus' name! Let angels prostrate fall. Bring forth the royal diadem, and crown Him Lord of all.” He sang all of the verses. When he opened his eyes, all of the warriors had dropped their spears to the ground. They invited him to come into their village and welcomed him with open arms. As he began to share the Gospel, he won many of them to faith in Jesus.

There is power in the name of Jesus! Let me say it again, “There is power in the name of Jesus!” If you are going through a war right now and you don't know how to pray, and you don't know what to say, just cry out, “Jesus help me.” He is ready, and He is willing. He is able, and He wants to meet you right now. He will come to you where you are, right here, right now. The name of Jesus is very powerful! Run to him now!
