GOD has a way of changing us according to the name HE assigns us.
Many people still residing in this earth are renamed, be it celebrity, sportsman, literary figure or a rural boy.
However when GOD changes name, HE means to change us to live up to that name.
A young boy was renamed to a Christian name in the South Asian Country where majority of the people are Hindu, Buddhist and Muslim.
Wherever he went, he itroduced himself with that Christian name he had received. Once the introduction was done, the others would question, “Are you a Christian”. He was easily identified as a follower of LORD Jesus Christ.
“You shall leave your name to my chosen for a curse, and the Lord GOD will put you to death, but his servants he will call by another name” (Isaiah 65:15).
