There have been a lot of good nicknames in baseball through the years. Just a few of my favorites: “Mudcat” Grant, “Oil Can” Boyd, “No Neck” Williams, “Catfish” Hunter…and the list goes on.
Jesus gave some of his followers nicknames or new names. He called James and John “Sons of Thunder,” He renamed Cephas “Peter” Which meant the “Rock.” If He were to give you a new name, what would it be?
In Revelation we are told that all believers who overcome hardships will be given a new name by God that will be known only to you and Him.
(“I will also give a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to him who receives it.”- Revelation 2:17b). Because of God’s great love for you, I believe it will be a very good name, honoring all that you have overcome in this present life. I say that just in case you are worried that it might be “Mudcat”or “Oil Can!”
