The name Xavier means ‘bright’. Someone said to be bright usually is considered to be very smart in some way. Or at least cheerful, lighting up the room when they enter it because of their wonderful personality. Xavier has been put here on this sometimes dark and dreary world to be a bright and shining example of God’s love and glory. When his whole heart and soul has been given over to the will of the Lord Jesus Christ to mold unto His likeness then the world in which Xavier lives will be benefited.
Xavier is destined for splendor. He will indeed, in some way at some time, if only for a fraction of space in time do something truly grand or magnificent. In God’s name he will achieve great fame and glory. This is not said to puff him up to make him think more highly of himself than he ought. Oh no. God has a mighty use for him. And use him He will. It seems at times that God really does choose specific people for specific things at specs times. Daniel in the Lion’s den, David and Goliath , Ruth, Esther, Mary through mother of Jesus and the list goes on and on.
What is this great thing for which He called him? Who knows? But as Xavier continues to give his heart to the Lord and to seek His face it will happen. Without him being aware of it. Even those around him may have a hard time seeing His glory on his life. For Jesus Himself told his disciples that a prophet had no honour in his own country. John 4:44.
Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
