The God I Know
This is what the Lord says: “Let not the wise boast of their wisdom or the strong boast of their strength or the rich boast of their riches, 24 but let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the Lord , who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the Lord .
Jeremiah 9:23-24 (NIV)
Who is God? Who is God to you? Why does the Bible speak about different names of God? These are common questions we might have asked or heard.
I am baffled that sometimes, a person’s answer to the question “Who is God?” and “Who is God to you?” is different. Then I realized that sometimes we hear or read something about God, but we fail to believe or experience it. But God isn’t someone to be defined by a list of words or characters, and He is someone to be known and relate with.
Also, God is someone we cannot put in a box or a book. Our professor told us that even our whole time here on earth is not enough to discover everything about Him. He is so great and gracious that even if we cannot grasp everything about Him, He has given us the Bible to know Him and relate to Him. Join us in uncovering the truth about God behind some of the His names revealed in the Bible.
