Why are names important to us? Last names mean something, often stemming from what their ancestors did. Jesus’ name meant “he will save his people from their sins”. He lived up to his name as Christ the anointed one.
We too are anointed through baptism as Christians. With this anointing comes responsibility, and our behavior should reflect that. It is a challenge – one that we can take on with a joyful heart. Let us look to Christ and focus on Him as we prepare to celebrate His Birth!
