5 Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.
-You’ve no doubt seen posters or pictures that list several names and titles for Jesus Christ. The Lord carries so many names because there are so many different parts He plays in the universe and, more importantly, in the lives of His people. If the multitude of ways that the Lord is described in the Bible is supposed to be important to us, wouldn’t the many ways that the Lord describes us in the Bible be just as important to Him? Did you know that there are over 175 different names and titles for Believers in the New Testament alone? Consider the following list which is by no means exhaustive. Consider what they mean to you and whether or not you are fulfilling these roles. If the Lord called out one of these names, would you be able to answer to it?
Believers (Acts 5:14), Brethren (Matthew 23:8), Children of the Living God (Romans 9:26), Chosen Vessels (Acts 9:15), Disciples of Christ (John 8:31), Faithful (Psalms 12:1), Fellow-servants (Revelation 6:11), Friends of God (James 2:23), Godly (2 Peter 2:9), Holy People (Isiah 62:12), Lively Stones (1 Peter 2:5), Salt of the earth (Matthew 5:13), Sojourner (Psalms 39:12), Witnesses (Isaiah 44:8)
