Show Notes

Colossians 3:10, “Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.”


Throughout the Bible, when God changed a person’s name and gave him a new name, it was usually to establish a new identity. God changed Abram’s name, meaning "high father," to “Abraham,” meaning "father of a multitude" (Genesis 17:5). At the same time, God changed Abraham’s wife’s name from “Sarai,” meaning “my princess,” to “Sarah,” meaning “mother of nations” (Genesis 17:15). These changes took place when God gave Abraham the covenant of circumcision. In the New Testament, Jesus changed Simon’s name, meaning “God has heard,” to “Peter,” meaning "rock" when He first called him as a disciple (John 1:42). If you want to experience a Happy New You perhaps you need a new name.
