Genesis 3:20 NIV
“Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living.”
We have read the story of Adam and Eve many times, but when we can take a moment and be reverend, we allow the Holy Spirit to speak to us beyond what is written. And one day, our hope is that what is written will become spoken and revealed in our flesh.
Just found it humbling to know that God not only allowed Adam to give names to His creation, but God also allowed Adam to give Eve her name.
And this simple wisdom is that every “name” has a meaning. Eve’s name has a significant meaning that Adam wanted us to remember even long after they were gone.
Every “name” that Adam gave to God’s creation, I believe had an intimate meaning to him that was a reminder of God’s love.
Now when mankind fell, we LOST the connection to all these meanings that Adam gave.
By God’s grace, Jesus came to RESTORE all these connections and this is why I believe His NAME was written to be The NAME above ALL names. Many names came before Him that had great meanings, but His name has the greatest meaning.
Matthew 1:21 NIV
“She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”
Matthew 16:16 NET
“Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
And in that most Holy name of Jesus Christ, remain blessed and reminded of His unfailing love.
In Honor of the Mother of all living and all the mothers in our life.
