Get To Know God—Learn 5 Of The Many Names Representing God.

Are you contemplating God? Get to know Him on a personal level, simply by learning His many names.

We all go by different names. Many people know me as Debra, though I am also known as Debbie, Mrs. Pedrow, Mom, Aunt Debra, and D. Just like you, I also have names that not only identify my person, they describe what I do and who I am.

I was born a daughter, sister, granddaughter and niece at the moment of my birth. I soon became a cousin, neighbor, friend, student, Girl Scout, Rainbow Girl, Christian, Color Guard, babysitter, artist, employee, wife, mother, Girl Scout mother, volunteer, writer, mother-in-law, and much more.

Each “name” offers clues to who I am and the direction of my heart. And God’s names, all found in the Bible, also offer insight to the reader as to what His true being and character are.

The Prayer of Jabez

Do you desire to receive all the blessings God planned for your life? I sure do. The trouble is many Christians either have not been taught, or, do not realize—It’s ok to ask God for blessings!

This concept of asking is often considered selfish by some believers. They say we should be praying for God to bless those less fortunate than ourselves, not ask for “more”.

7 Bible Verses That Say—God Forgives!

Stop feeling guilty! Jesus offered himself as the true sacrifice for our sin. Stop rejecting Him! Jesus willingly died for all of mankind. Jesus knew my name as He hung on The Cross—and He knew your name too! He willfully endured punishment we deserve, in order to save us from the sufferi.n

Sin, like breaking the law, can not go unpunished. Penalties are required for transgressions. But God, in His loving nature, chose not to have mankind pay for our own sin. He mercifully planed to send His own son to pay the price for our wrongdoing.

Wow! Thank you Jesus!

The Bible Affirms Marriage

The February 26 vote is in for the Methodist church. This particular vote was on whether or not to ordain gays and lesbians in relationships, allow clergy to officiate at same-sex marriages and hold such ceremonies in a church— all practices which have been noted as not following biblical views. A New York Times article describes the vote as:

After three days of intense debate at a conference in St. Louis, the vote by church officials and lay members from around the world doubled down on current church policy, which states that “the practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching.” The vote served as a rejection of a push by progressive members and leaders to open the church to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

I agree that there was much debate, as it was stated in other articles. And yes, the Bible is direct that “the practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching.” However, I do not see the Methodist vote as closing the church to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. From the beginning regarding marriage, the Bible has always stated truth:
