Character Is Power!
The American educator and author, Booker T. Washington said, “Character is power!” Our character is defined by the way we think, feel, and behave- our personality. This includes our moral firmness and judgment. The combination of these qualities is what makes us distinct, unique and different from others.
I appreciate the power in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ which is connected to His character. The scripture states, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). Though many males have been named Jesus throughout history- what gives the name of the Lord Jesus unique power is the person behind His name. His character brings power to His name!
Thinking back over forty years of knowing Him, I have fallen short many times in my character. Yet I discovered, His character remained stable and strong! Backsliding from His fellowship and obedience to His word in my college years, I was renewed and filled with divine passion again. The name of Jesus delivered me! The character of Jesus began to form in me His divine nature! You too can partake of His power and character. You can be renewed in your faith and revived in your passion. On a daily basis, love, cherish, call on and trust the power of His name!
