In many ways, names define us.
God gave a few significant names to Jesus, the baby lying in the manger. He called Him Emmanuel, God with us (Matthew 1:23). He called him Jesus, which means “The Lord saves” (Matthew 1:21). He even said that the baby was the prince of peace and that the government rested on His shoulders (Isaiah 9:6).
The amazing thing is, in the same way that God spoke His identity over Jesus, a babe lying in the manger, He gives a name to us. What is God’s name for you? What is God speaking over your life?
In this sermon, I share about the significance of the name that he gave the babe in the manger, Jesus Christ. I also challenge each person to hear who we are to God, so that God can define our identity through Christ. In the end, the more we know who God is, the more we know who we are. Enjoy!
