We all have labels–we give them to ourselves and we receive them from others. These labels inform our understanding of ourselves and affect the way we behave. But when we give our lives to Christ, we are given a brand new set of labels. All throughout the story of the Bible, people are given new names–names that speak of something greater in them than their current reality. In the same way, followers of Christ are known by many names in the New Testament, and these names help us understand our true identity in Christ.
