Your name is given to you by your parents. You don’t get to choose it. It’s a gift.
And, it’s how others know you, identify you, and how they speak to you and call out to you.
But, have you ever learned the meaning of your name? Have you ever researched it?
Jesus, our Heavenly Savior, has many names we can use to call out to Him and each one holds significance, reverence, and power. When you dig into the Bible, you learn that each name has a purpose, a story, and a meaning. And, each one is available to us at any time, in any moment. Do you know the names of Jesus to call on? Here’s just a sample.
