February 15: Nicknames


Scripture Lesson: John 1:40-42


Today is the birthday of former Dodger and Cub player, Ron Cey. When playing for the Dodgers, Cey was a part of the longest tenured infield in baseball history. From 1984-1992 the Dodgers infield consisted of Steve Garvey at first, Davy Lopes at second, Bill Russell at short, and Ron Cey at third. Cey is also known for his unusual nickname: he was called “The Penguin” because of the characteristic way he walked and ran.


Andrew had just encountered Jesus for the first time in our scripture lesson today. The story tells us that he went immediately to find his brother Simon, and brought him to meet Jesus, too. When Jesus saw Simon, he gave him a nickname, Cephas or Peter. The nickname means “Rock” (“Cephas” is Aramaic, “Peter” is derived from Greek). So Jesus nicknamed Simon “Rock,” and on that rock Jesus later said He would build His Church. Faith like a rock: I like that nickname for a Christian. Don’t lose sight of the fact that when Andrew saw Jesus he had to tell his brother. There may be someone we need to tell the good news of Jesus Christ!

  1. What would your faith nickname be based on how your walk with Jesus is going?

  2. Why was Simon changed to Rock?

  3. Ask God today for someone to cross your path that needs to hear about Jesus.

Today let us all do our best to live the example of Jesus, Andrew, and Rock as we walk through life today!

Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd ask.
Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a
blog article or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same
subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an email.
I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!
