Welcome to the summary post of the “What in God’s Name?!” series we wrapped up last week.
On this journey to the heart of God through exploring His names, we saw the backstory revealing each name as almost always one of “hide and go seek”. Only it’s no game because it cost God everything to seek after us and redeem us through the sacrifice of His Son.
The series highlighted that ever since Adam and Eve broke relationship, God’s been on an unceasing quest to bring estranged sinners back into an authentic personal relationship with Himself.
No matter how many times we hide from God, He comes seeking, crying out: “Where are you?” and “What doest thou here?” to penetrate the dark places of our heart-hiding.
One way He’s done this is by revealing Himself to us through His various names so we may come to know Him as He defines Himself.
In this series we saw that the names of God entail far more than mere identification. Yes, His names do express identity, but also character and purpose.
For this series we looked at the names that speak to the purpose of redemption—the 7 redemptive names of God.
Personally, through this series, I’ve gotten to SEE God in better ways and as He revealed Himself my heart discovered itself. I learned that if I desire to reveal me to myself, then I must first come to know who God is. And I also discovered that there’s no better way to do this than by delving into His names. And so the adventure began and so it will continue.
