These days, in most cultures, names are just designations. I have my name only because that’s the name my parents chose. It doesn’t really “mean anything,” apart from being connected to me. However, in different culture at different times in history, names were much more descriptive of the type of person you were believed to be.
In the Bible, several people were given new names by God. With those new names came not just new designations, but new missions, new purposes, new identities.
This message explores the idea of having a new name, a meaningful name, a name given to you by God Himself.
