“Written by Joan Fudala”
Names are important to us. In fact, it can be the most important word to a person. A name identifies a person and sets him or her apart as an individual. Parents study, discuss, analyze, and often labor when naming their children. Naming a dog, cat, or other pet requires thought as well. Names are important.
In ancient Jewish culture, the culture of the Bible, names did more than distinguish one person from another. Names represented character attributes. They were sometimes prophetic. Some names told a story. Often decided by the mother, a child’s name was very significant.
The Holy Bible contains many Names of God. We learn much about God as we learn His Names. Truly, it is essential to know God’s Name. The Bible tells us that as His children, we bear that Name, His Name. We are commanded to live in such a way that will bring It honor. As we come to know the significance of each Name, we will learn more about God and we will enhance the breadth of our ability to praise God and to live in His protection, and strength.
Blog posts will be coming out throughout the year. Each Name will help you know more about God and His Nature. We pray that these verses and information will help you come to know Him in a far more personal and intimate way.
“Through this study, I have come to learn more of the attributes and character of God. As I have grown to understand the very nature and character of God, I find myself running to His Name to find safety and strength. His name is like a strong tower! I have found that the more I know Him, the more I trust Him. Now I want to know Him more!”
