If you are familiar with our website, you may know that this website is an online shop for Christian products, especially Bible verse T-shirts. Our previous brand name is “Emmanuel Love”, and we just changed our brand name to “Meek Ever”. I am going to explain the whole process here.
We love our previous brand name “Emmanuel Love” a lot because this name reminds us the love of our God and the love of Jesus. God is with us always, and what a comfort it is! One day, in a meeting, one team member brought up the question that whether it was good to use the name of Jesus "Emmanuel" as our brand name. We discussed seriously, and our final decision was that even though our ministry is to spread God’s words, we need show our respect to the name of Jesus. We need change our brand name.
Once we decided to change our brand name, we started with our vision. Our vision is Isaiah 11:9 For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
The core of God’s knowledge is Jesus and his gospel. Then we thought about the sermon on the mount and eight beatitudes. One of our team members was attracted deeply by the word “meek”. When we meditated on this word, we knew it was the value we wanted to spread to this world. Meek refers to mildness, gentleness of spirit, or humility. Meek also has the meaning of submissive and obedient. Meekness is humility toward God and toward others. It is having the right or the power to do something but refraining for the benefit of someone else. Jesus said, "Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth." (Matthew 5:5)
It ’s because the arrogance of human being that we separated from God, and Jesus reconciled our relationship with God through his obedience. “ For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.” (Romans 5:19)
Like all of you, we are in great sorrow because of the Florida school shooting happened in 2/14, 2018. This is an age calls for peace, and to be meek is the way to have peace.
Be Meek always, be meek forever.
