“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other word would smell as sweet.” Romeo & Juliet
Our names have such a huge part on our identity. Most parents go to great lengths to find just the right name for their babies. They pour over books, asks their friends and family and may even “google” the definitions or meanings of names that made their top 10 list.
My husband and I went back and forth for weeks over the names we wanted for our children. In the end we compromised and our kids have lovely names.
Back in Bible times, parents did the same mulling over the meanings of their child’s name. It had to have great meaning so it would impact, inspire and help direct their child’s life in a positive way.
The Bible tells us, in Isaiah 9:6, that a child was coming and gave us a glimpse into His identity.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
During my quiet time with God lately, I hear echoed in my heart…Seek me, Know me.
Let’s know who Jesus is and seek His face. Let’s worship, by writing out scripture so we may be able to hide it in our hearts.
Learning scripture allows us to recall God’s truth so when bad times come, and they will come, we are ready and can call from memory Bible verses and truths to speak and preach to ourselves and those around us.
So let’s link arms and study who the Bible says that Jesus is! Everyday for the next 30 days, look up and write out one scripture on who Christ is. Let the scripture sink deep into your heart. Meditate on it all day long. Allow the scripture to place Jesus in His rightful place in your heart and life.
