It is amazing to realize that one week ago today, Peter David was born. We chose the name Peter because of the disciple of Jesus named Peter who was one of the first to declare Jesus as the Messiah. He was a man who was quick to come to recognize and proclaim the title that Jesus deserved–“Thou art the Christ!” Jesus turned to Peter, and said, “Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18). It is our prayer that Peter would be used of God to do great things in building and advancing the Kingdom of God!
We chose the middle name David because he is our fifth born and Peter’s dad was also a fifth born. The name David comes from a man in the Bible who was “a man after mine own heart” (Acts 13:22). We pray this little man is a man after God’s own heart.
