Who are you?

In Acts, chapter 19, there’s a verse I’ve heard before. But today, it hit me strong. It was during Paul’s missionary journeys. Paul was in Ephesus for over 2 years preaching and teaching. While there, God even blessed handkerchiefs that touched Paul so that they were carried to the sick, and just by touching the handkerchief that touched Paul, the sick were healed.

Other Jewish leaders, not Christian, were trying to drive out evil spirits in Jesus’ Name as well. But one day, an evil spirit answered these Jews and said, “Jesus I know, and I know about Paul, but who are you?”

What are you attempting for the Kingdom? For the Name of Jesus? Are trying to do it in your own power so that even the demons say, “Who are you? We don’t know you.” Or do the demons shudder at the thought of an encounter with you?

Are you doing anything for the Kingdom? Are you attempting to accomplish anything for the Name of Jesus? Your silence, your in-activity, or maybe your apathy…those are all victories for the devil. Our country is in a downward spiral spiritually as much as any other way because even the demons laugh at us and our feeble, faith-less attempts. Hebrews 11:6 says, “Without faith it is impossible to please God.”

What are you doing for the Kingdom of God? What are you attempting in the Name of Jesus?
