You know my name. You walk with me. You talk with me.
You tell me that I am Your own. God, You know me.

It's true we live in a culture where name dropping not only has the power to deny or grant one access to their hopes and dreams while perpetrating familiarity without relationship!  If the old cliché' "it's not what they call you but what you answer to" were actually true there would be no need for intimately getting to know one's name.

The profundity of being "accepted in the Beloved" is simply God's willingness to commune with us regardless of what we've done, but what Christ has done for us!  In other words, what does it gain us if our names are called by many but never known by the One who calls us His own?

Now ruminate on that for a minute . . . . .
