In Isaiah 9:6 we see four names given for Jesus — Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace.
Two additional names that you probably know include Immanuel, which means “God with us” and Joshua (where the name ‘Jesus’ is actually taken from) which means “God saves.”
What is the significance of all these different names for the Savior? It is God showing us His desire to be in a forever relationship with us. The reason “hope has a name” is because Jesus is with us. Jesus knows us and pursues us.
The question is, are we pursing Jesus?
