What’s in a Name?

One of the more perplexing things when you have a baby is what you will call this new little life.   After all, this name will be with them for ever.  Unless… you pick something they don’t like and they change it later in life, hence the perplexity.  You hold the little one in your arms and look deeply into their little eyes, hold their hands and try and see “who” they are.   My husband picked the names for both of our children and if I do say so myself, he did a wonderful job!

When Mary and Joseph had Jesus they already knew what His name would be, an angel told them.  He has many other names as well because of who He is.   I hope as you read through these names that you will be able to soak up in your heart each one and know He is all of this for you.   He loves you and gives all He is and has to save you, care for you and to let you know you are never alone.  The following list of some of the names of Jesus are favourites of mine.  I hope you know Jesus in such a way that, just the mention of His name brings peace and comfort to you as we live in this crazy world.

Hugs n Prayers


The Beginning and the End

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” Revelations 22:13

Our Advocate

“My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.” 1 John 2:1

Bread of Life

“Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.”   John 6:35

Good Shepherd

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”     John 10:11

High Priest. (This is my favourite!)

“Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:14
