Family Name posted by John Sorensen on Dec 08, 2020
As a child, did your parents ever say, ‘remember who you are’ or ‘Don’t forget your last name’? This is a not so subtle reminder to watch your behavior – you’re not just representing yourself with your actions! In the Bible, family names really matter. In fact, lineage meant a lot in terms of Messianic prophecy. In Second Samuel, God talks about King David and says, “I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.” Matthew one verse one says “This is the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah the son of David, the son of Abraham.” All the way back in Genesis, the Messiah is prophesied about being from Judah, and in Luke chapter 3, we read that Jesus is the son of Judah. As believers in Jesus, the most important Name we carry is His! So, how can you represent Him well? First, by being His witnesses throughout the earth.
