What Do You Call Him?
Daily Reading – Genesis 3 – 5 / Matthew 2
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
Matthew 2:23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
In Matthew 2:15 it says Jesus was called out of Egypt. Egypt has long been a biblical picture of the world. We find here that Jesus gave a great example to all humanity. As did Israel, Jesus came out of Egypt, a picture of coming out of the world or worldliness.
In verse 23 it says He was called a Nazarene. The people of Nazareth were not looked upon fondly. To be called a Nazarene was a sign of contempt. Christians too are often unfairly labeled and are called names by the world after accepting Christ.
WHAT DO YOU SAY:
It really matters not what the world calls Jesus.
The most important question is, what do you call Him?
