See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. (1 John 3:1)
SheepWhen Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things. (Mark 6:34)
FriendI no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. (John 15:15)
Soldier/WarriorThe armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. (Revelation 19:14)
Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear. (Revelation 19:7-8)
There are great aspects to each of these descriptive names that I believe help in making us a better Believer or Christian. Children receive the Father's love and discipline. Sheep know His, The Shepherd's, voice. Friends are no longer servants because they are in the know when they need to know. Soldiers are on the winning side. The Bride will know the intimacies of The Son, along with a whale of an Eternal Party.
Let us pay attention to what God calls us in Scripture, declaring the goodness of that name and becoming more like His Son everyday.
