…I have called you by your name…

Isaiah 43:1-2

“…Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are Mine….”

There is something so wonderful about being called by your name… especially by someone who loves you.

A classroom of children were given the task to create a definition for what it means to be loved.  One little boy gave it a lot of thought… he finally said, “When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.”

God loves us beyond what we could even imagine… He calls us by name… He calls us His own… our name is safe in His mouth!
