What's in a Name?

I think back on how long it took us to pick out names for our children. How hard it was to settle on one name that we both could agree on. Everyone knows the importance of a name; so did God. He wanted His son to be called Jesus (Matthew 1:21). But it was not the only name given to Him…no, not just one name could be given to call the One who would deliver us all. To the One who would meet all our needs. This Christmas, amidst all your searching for the perfect gift, turn to Him who already was and always will be our one true Perfect Gift. He will supply all your needs. He is:
