Rather, the reason the name is powerful is the one who answers it. ... The one whom the Name represents was given all authority in heaven and in earth (Matthew 28:18). Jesus Christ is the Name by which all things were created
Why is this name so powerful? It is because of the sacrifice He made—through living a perfect life, dying a sinner's death, and being resurrected. Jesus made a way for all of humanity to be saved and made right with God: "everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved
The literal name "Jesus" is not inherently powerful; it is powerful because of Jesus Christ, the person, God incarnate, who made a way for our salvation. When we talk about the name of Jesus, we are talking about Jesus Himself, His character and the things He does.
As believers, we are fully convinced of the power within the name of Jesus. When we pray, we have the power of Jesus at work within us. Our lives as Christians are lived from a place of acknowledging the power in Jesus' name: "And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him
