What’s in a Name

I am an idiot. Or, I am God’s workmanship. Which will it be?

The famous phrase, “A rose is a rose is a rose” simply means that what you are is what you are or your identity.

One of the names God uses to identify Himself to humanity is Savior. He is the Deliverer or the One who makes broken people whole.

You and I are broken in need of a Savior, not just to become children of God, but to be continually changed for the rest of our lives. I mean, who wants to stay busted up, right?

Savior from what? Please don’t go all generic on me and say sin. Yes, that is true. But that doesn’t get you to identify the area of brokenness you need to be delivered from or fixed.

Try saying to your mechanic, “My car is broken. Fix it.” They will look at you with an inquisitive stare, waiting for you to give them additional information to know where to start solving the problem.

Where is the Savior asking to change your life? Be specific. This enables you to hear the specific scriptural truth/medication the Spirit will use to heal your broken life.

And then as you obey that truth by faith (can’t get healed if you don’t take the medication!) in the Spirit’s power you will be set free, healed/made whole or fixed.

What’s in a name? Everything. They are identifiers. What name of God do you need to know and apply to your life today? Let the Spirit do His job of revealing who the real Jesus is!

What names are you calling yourself? Are they truth/medicine to heal or poison to destroy?

Choose biblical truth. Choose to be fixed by the Savior! What’s in a name? Everything.
