Davidisms: God Gives You a New Name

Name change.

It happens after a significant event has occurred in a person’s life. A woman’s name changes after she becomes a wife. A child’s name changes after being adopted by new parents.

Did you know name change is a constant theme in the Bible as well?

Abram to Abraham.

Sarai to Sarah.

Jacob (trickster) to Israel (strength of the Lord).

Simon (wishy-washy) to Peter (the Rock). Saul to Paul.

Jesus never looks at who you are but who you can become. He sees the before, but he blesses the after. Isn’t that great news?

Jesus can and will take your brokenness and turn it into blessedness.

And one day everyone will be given a totally new name in heaven (Revelation 2:17). It will be a name that no one else has. Given uniquely to us by our eternal Father. It’ll be beautiful. Melodic. Perfectly for us.

What a glorious day that will be!
