What shall we name the baby?
That’s a question as old as human history itself, and obviously an important one.
A little over 2,000 years ago, a young couple named Mary and Joseph must have asked it, at least inwardly; but they got some supernatural assistance in answering it (Matthew 1:21; Luke 1:31). And now most of us know Him best by that simple name – Jesus. But we also get help from dozens and dozens of scriptures which give Him various names, descriptive titles, and designations – literally from A to Z. Each one is rich with meaning.
In our Christmas Season worship series, we’ll explore some of them and their beautiful implications. Let’s learn together what it means to live, “Knowing Him By Name”!
