My Musings

Did you ever wonder about all the renaming in the testaments?  God renamed Abram to Abraham.  Jesus renamed Simon to Peter.  Why does God do this?  How much of a name determines what one's character will be?  Jesus thought this was important.  Names mean something.  They are not just random utterances without meaning.  Even in the eternity to come Jesus says He will give us a white stone with a new name on it. A name only we will know.  And why is it kept secret between Him and us?  Another intimacy we will share?  Oh the mysteries we have yet to explore.
