What’s in a name? A lot, right? We plan to name our son Lincoln Ryle Edwards. Edwards communicates what family he belongs to… it connects him to a line of people. Lincoln is a strong name, a name that communicates strength and wisdom. Ryle is after JC Ryle, an English pastor and Theologian who was a star cricket player and was described by JI Packer as a man of granite with the heart of a child. In fact, the biography I recently read is titled, The Man of Granite. A lot of thought goes into the naming of a child. It’s often a source of many conversations or arguments between the mother and father. It’s one of the first things people ask. When Zacharias and Elizabeth have a baby in Luke, their friends and family question their decision to name their son John. 2nd guessing new parents is a Christmas tradition. :) However, Joseph and Mary didn’t need to determine what they would name their 1st born child. The angel told them that they would name Him Jesus. Scripture also tells us that He would be called Christ & Emmanuel. In this message we want us to look at these 3 names. Jesus Christ, Emmanuel.
