When I dreamed of marrying Jeff, I practiced writing what my new name would look like: Mrs. Lisa Burgess. When a bride takes on her husband’s name, it’s symbolic of a oneness like no other.
What about when the church, the bride of Christ, takes on His name?
Are we wearing His name well?
Don’t take a poll. You’ll be disappointed. Our ratings as Christians are poor. For too long we’ve been a bad taste in the mouth of the world. Many may like our Christ, but not everybody likes His followers.
Are we not living up to our name?

I’m writing today at Do Not Depart. Will you join me there on living up to our name?
