Bear the Name

Acts 9:15 15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: (NKJ)

This is an instruction given to all believers.  We are chosen vessels unto Jesus to bear His name to all.  To bear means to put on.  When we put on, we demonstrate to others what it is we are wearing; what it is we have put on.  We cannot put on the name of Jesus if we don’t know Jesus intimately.  We must know what He is all about.  Jesus is about the Father.  He came to glorify the Father and stand between us and the Father so we could be adopted through Jesus’ taking on our sin that caused separation.  We can only know Jesus, Who He is and What He stands for through study of the Holy Bible with the interpreter of the Holy Spirit.  Let us diligently get into the written word, putting it in our minds and hearts and making it part of us that we may bear the name of Jesus.
