Whether you're into music or movies, you're sure to have your favourite celeb. When we hear that 'certain name' we get a buzz of excitement. We spend big bucks to check out their latest film or attend their next concert. We may even queue for hours to catch just a glimpse of them.
Some people can make us starry-eyed. 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 caught up with him, the guy introduced 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, by simply stating who He was, He sent these guys tumbling. Go check it out in John 18:2-6.
Philippians 2:10 NLT tells us; '...at the name of Jesus every knee should bow' - and if they don't today, they will someday soon.
So what now? 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!
