Scripture: Acts 19:11-20

Acts 19 is the story of God working in incredible ways in the city of Ephesus. Acts 19:11-20 is one of the wildest stories though in the Bible, dudes are just trying to make a buck doing some tricks and yet the Lord has “concern for his holy name” as the prophet Ezekiel would say. So God exalts himself by not allowing these exorcists to misuse his name rather they run out “naked and wounded.” God will always exalt his name above sin and evil. He will always have the last word when it comes to people trying to use the name of Jesus for selfish reasons when their hearts are not submissive to the Lord. God will always be exalted, even in the most bizarre of ways.
