Suppose someone named Jones decided to go to a university to earn a doctorate degree in medicine. When he left the university he opened his own restaurant and named it Dr. Jones Fine Cuisine. A customer asked him why he called himself a doctor.
“Because I am a doctor.” he said.
“Why don’t you practice medicine?” the customer asked.
“I didn’t earn the title of doctor to practice medicine. I earned it so my customers would be impressed with how smart I am.” Dr. Jones replied.
Jesus’ names are not empty titles that have been given to Him to impress us. Each name means something and helps us to know who He really is and what He can actually do. His names have been revealed to us in Scripture so our faith can respond to Him and receive from Him.
For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [of Eternity], Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 (AMP)
