Genesis 17:5, Genesis 17:15, Revelation 2:17, Psalm 100:4

Has your name ever been changed?  The only time my name was changed was when I got married.  If someone gets a name change for another reason, that involves the Clerk of Court at a courthouse.  There can be a petition to the court, a hearing and pricey fees.  http://www.cookcountycourt.org/ABOUTTHECOURT/CountyDepartment/CountyDivision/ChangeofNameProceedings.aspx

When God changed Abram’s name to Abraham and Sarai’s name to Sarah, it didn’t involve a Clerk of Court, petitions, hearings or pricey fees.  God changed other people’s names in the Bible too and He’s not done changing names.  In Heaven, one can receive a new name on a white stone.
