Day 751 – Christ’s Mark


The disciples were first called Christians in Antioch. —Acts 11:26

Around the world, Christ’s name marks those who are His followers, going back to the earliest days of the church. “When [Barnabas] had found [Saul], he brought him to Antioch. So it was that for a whole year they assembled with the church and taught a great many people. And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch” (Acts 11:26).

Those who bear Christ’s name identify with Him because we have been changed by His love and grace. We declare to the world that He has made an eternal difference in our lives and we long for that in the hearts of others too.

Father, give us the grace and wisdom to honor You. May our life be so marked by the person of Christ that His great name—and salvation—will be embraced by others as well…Amen
