The Names Of God

December 20, 2010

I am in a worshipful mood at the moment as I have been playing some really wonderful Christmas music that listeners have been requesting. It got me to thinking about the awesome Majesty that IS the God we Christians worship.

When you take a step back and begin to reflect on just how good God IS to us and the untold ways He provides and cares for us, it begins to boggle the mind.

For all my fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord who visit, below is a list of the many ways God shows His supreme and undying love for us all. For any agnostic and skeptic friends that visit, don’t worry…you are not left out. The same God that we worship is the same God who is providing for you as you read these words. He is the same God for you that He is for us. The only difference is that right now we acknowledge His presence in our lives as living and active. I pray that you can take a minute and meditate on the Grace He has extended to us as this is the Christmas season…a time to reflect and give him an offering of our praise.

One Response to “The Names Of God”

  1. Kelly said

    Hey Jeff. Your list reminded me of this poem I wrote awhile back.. Thought I would put a little spin on the Names of God, as I see Him, too.
    Enjoy, brother – we share the same Abba Daddy!

    Lord, falling to my knees in prayer
    my hands and heart to you, I raise.
    Lord, As I look above to Who you are
    my thoughts lead out in joyful praise.

    You are the Son of Righteousness
    the Rock that steadies me when I fall
    You are the Refuge in times of fear
    You are Jesus, the Ransom for us all.

    You are the Friend of Sinners, Lord
    and the Gate for your Sheep to wander thru.
    In the dark, you are the Morning star
    The Teacher whose Word, is faithful and true..

    You are the Alpha, and Omega, Lord
    You are the beginning and the end
    You are the Prince of Peace we can cling to
    and the Fountain, that bubbles deep within.

    FatherGod, You are the Author of my faith
    the Perfector of all things You have made
    You are the sacrifice for all our Sin
    Your Throne in Heaven, gloriously displayed.
