 A Name Given                                                                   Merilee Ottoson

Biblical names were given to communicate God’s message to His people. They could also be used to establish authority over another. History tells us that the prophet Isaiah began his ministry about 800 years before the birth of Christ. Isaiah writes, “For a child will be born to us and a son will be given to us…. And His Name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father and Prince of Peace.”(Isaiah 9:6) Through the ages, God’s magnificent plan was always that Jesus was to be GIVEN….to a lost and dying world. We dare not let this significance be lost on us. 

His Name is above all others. From the Hebrew, the meaning of Jesus is “deliverer or someone who rescues”. Another name is Immanuel which means, “God with us”. “And you shall call His Name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins.” (Matt. 1:21) “And they shall call His Name Immanuel….(Matt. 1:23) Not only is Jesus our SAVIOR, He is always WITH us.

Indescribable, the wisdom of the Wonderful Counselor.

Uncomparable, a Mighty God who saves us.

Unchangable, the Eternal Father who loves us.

Undefeated, the Prince of Peace who

will bring peace to our troubled souls.


I will cling to this NAME while I have breath. I will utter this NAME each time I pray. I will sing this NAME again and again. Never has there been a NAME such as this. Never has there been a love such as this. Never before or since has a God  GIVEN a gift such as this. This GIFT has a NAME…

His Name is Jesus….
