John 1:35, 40-42 “The next day John was standing there again with two of his disciples. One of them was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. At once he found his brother Simon and told him ‘We have found the Messiah (Christ).’ Then he took Simon to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, ‘Your name is Simon son of John, but you will be called Cephas (translated to Peter, meaning Rock).”
Prayer: Ask God to reveal to you His special name for you, and to show you the special meaning of what He is calling you to do.
Spiritual growth: This might be the first time you’ve heard about name changes. So if you don’t feel comfortable with this, instead of dismissing this as not true, rather pray to God to help you understand the reason for Peter’s name change. And if you are comfortable with this, pray to God to reveal to you not only the meaning of your spiritual name, but also what you can do to grow into your full potential within the body of Christ.
