The Intrinsic Value of YOUR Name

In William Shakespeare’s play, Juliet mused, “What’s in a name?”,  but in Shakespeare’s personal reflection, he said,

Your Name communicates so much more than simply a tag or label of what to call you.  Your name becomes the representation of who you are; who you are to your family, to your boss, to your friends, to your children, to the businessman in the office or the waitress at your table.  Your name establishes the beginning of a reputation, and the whole of your reputation is recalled to others by the thought or speaking of your name.

Throughout history, names have been of great importance.  Adam, the first man, was given the task of naming all the animals, and was the only man ever to have the honor of choosing a name for his wife, Eve.  Abram and Sarai’s names were changed to Abrahamand Sarahwhen Yahweh vested part of His nameand reputation into their identities and lives. Yahweh, speaking to Moses

To Moses, God said, “I will do what you have requested, because I am pleased with you and I know you by name.” (Exodus 33:17)  He said to Jeremiah, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.  Before you were born, I set you apart.”
(Jer 1:5)

 

Thus saith Yahweh that created thee, O Jacob, and He that formed thee, O Israel,:
“Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.”    Isaiah 43:1

God places tremendous significance on names, and the meanings of them, starting with the creation of Adam, "One formed of the earth", following humanity's line to the naming of his own Son, Jesus, Whose name was the word for “Salvation”.  When the Angel of God appeared to Joseph in a dream, he came with a very specific message about the meaning of the name. jesus cross sunset Can you see in this verse how God chose a name that directly described the life purpose for His son?

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call His name Jesus: for he shall save His people from their sins."     Matthew 1.21

God's emphasis on the meaning of names didn't stop there.  There continues to be incredible importance placed in the meaning of names, from the parents who name their newborn, to the sweethearts who make up affectionate nicknames for eachother, to the name chosen for a new business, to God's careful guidance of your life to develop and discover the meaning of your name.
