Change Your Name
By Steve Higginbotham
April 7, 2004

The story is told that during the days of Alexander the Great, there were a number of men who in a particular battle, distinguished themselves as cowards.  These men were lined up before the great leader.  Alexander the Great came to all of the men and asked, "Young man, what is your name?"  One young soldier said, "My name is Alexander, sir."  Reportedly, Alexander the Great firmly replied, "Either change your name or change your conduct!"

I wonder what the Lord would say to many of us who wear the name Christian?  Would he tell us to change our name or change our conduct?  Or are we bringing honor to his name by the way we live?  Give it some thought.
