A Righteous Just Warrior
Justus Drew Burger
This is the name of our second son.
and more importantly, goes well with BURGER...i mean come on, lets be honest.
Righteous. Just. Fair.
There are three mentions of Justus's in Scripture. The first is the most commonly known, Joseph of Barsabas called Justus, was elected along with Matthias to become an Apostle after Judas of Iscariot fell. Acts 1:23.
Although the aforementioned Justus is great, we are taken more by the next two for various reasons. The second one mentioned is in Acts 18:7. Justus' home adjoined the synagogue in Corinth and he received Paul into his home when the Jews opposed him. Paul considered Justus' home his own synagogue. Paul's description of Justus is simply this, A worshiper of God. I LOVE IT!
And the third Justus mentioned is in Colossians 4:11 is a great friend of Paul's during the same years that Paul wrote to Titus. So Titus and Justus both were followers of Christ and friends of Paul. It could be that they ministered alongside one another at some point! cool to think about!
(funny side note, when I was in j-high and high school i had a running list of names i wanted my sons to be and both Titus and Justus were in the top three...i wont reveal the third in case the Lord sees fit to bless! hehe!)
Warrior. Man. Wise.
The name Drew came from a dear friend of ours Drew Barker. Drew is a 17 year old boy from Midland TX. He is a wonderful example of what we hope our boys to be in their young adult years. He loves the Lord, loves his family and is fun to be around. Drew has the perseverance of a warrior, just like his name. When things are hard, he is strong and gentle all at the same time. He loves children and has taken Titus in as his own little brother. He is a hard hard worker and has the heart of a true servant. I could go on and on about Drew and his sweet family and all the Lord has done in our lives through them, but that will have to be an entire post of its own.
So that's the name....what do you think?
