What’s in a name? A name is more than just something by which we are called; in a sense it is our reputation. A name can conjure up images of glory, honor, and grace. It may cause sadness, anger, and dismay. A name is a powerful thing. Did you know there are a multitude of names for God, and each one has special meaning?
In hopes of helping my children have a better understanding of who God is and all He means to us, December will once again be dedicated to “What’s In a Name?”. Join us this Christmas season as we share in the joy of the Lord and learn of His glorious names.
Another exciting adventure awaits us through the Scriptures where we will learn some amazing verses, talk about how those verses should affect our lives, and discuss some practical ways to make these names “real” for our children.
Before we begin, let’s glance back at some names we’ve covered through “What’s In a Name?” in previous years:
The Alpha & Omega
The Prince of Peace
The Root of David
The High Priest
The Angel of God
In addition to the articles we’ll be posting here on the blog, look for us on social media for discussions on each name! We’ll be encouraging open conversation on which names of God have special meaning in our own lives, and how He is constantly revealing Himself to us. We’ll also be sharing how we can help our children better understand each of these names, and how He wants to be an active part of their lives.
“Then Moses said to God, “If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?” God said to Moses, “I am who I am.””
