Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

His Name Will Be…

What names were given to Jesus at his birth?  And what is their significance?  Each of them has a special meaning.  Here are some of them:

Jesus—Salvation 

Christ/Messiah—King appointed by God

Emmanuel—God with us—this time “with skin on”!

Every one of these indicates a relationship.  He saves us, rules over us with love and justice, and lives/stays with us.   He is not a God who is far away but one who cares and delights in every detail of my life.  What comfort, security, and hope.
