When you hear a name, something usually comes to mind. If you hear the name Mr. Johnson, what comes to mind? I will list some names, and I would be grateful if you could think of a person that may have the name. You will see why at the end. What do you think about them? What impression did they leave on you? How did they affect your life? How do they feel about you? What comes to mind about the person overall?
Mr./ Mrs. White
Mr./ Mrs. Washington
What do you think comes to someone else's mind when your name is mentioned? Are the thoughts the same as what you thought about the names listed above? Do you see how the vision and thought process changed?
What about Moses, Mary, Job, Ezekiel, and Jacob? How about Boaz, Ruth, or Jonadab? What comes to mind when you hear those names?
What about Jesus? What comes to mind when you hear that name?
Something to think about, isn't it?
