Weekend Worship: LOVE

By in Noah's Archives | 0 comments

As I continue to consider the names of God in my personal study, I thought I’d feature another song exalting God’s name: God is love (1 John 4:16). This simple message needs to be lived out in and through our lives to reach others. It seems like so many people, even professing Christians, see God as an angry judge, a distant father, or some other negative perception. What we need is a revival of seeing who God is: God is LOVE! And, if you haven’t already noticed, Tembalami is my favorite YouTube channel so I’m going to let Tembalami lead us in worship again.   LOVE   We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. 1 John 4:16   Sharable Image (Share the Love!)  ...

Crazy Grace Chapel: You Are the Most High God

This year I want to focus on the names of God in my personal meditation time. I am in desperate need of change this year. My efforts to change are futile because God changes us from the inside out (not the outside in). So instead of trying to change my behavior, I’m going to focus on who God is. As I learn different aspects of who God is, I’ll experience Him in new ways as He becomes everything I lack. He will change me from the inside out.   The Most High God       “I cry out to God Most High, to God who will fulfill his purpose for me” (Psalm 57:2).  ...

The Names of God by Kenneth S. Hemphill My rating: 3 of 5 stars I’m currently delving into the names of God so I picked up this eBook by Ken Hemphill, The Names of God. I’ve never given any thorough study to the Hebrew names of God in the Old Testament so I thought this book would be a good place to start. I have to admit I had a difficult time concentrating and following this text. Some parts were academic and dry, listing the number of times each word appeared in the Bible. Other parts wandered away from the main points to tell stories or chase the author’s rabbits. For instance, in too many chapters, he gave the message of salvation, which is an honorable goal, but I seriously doubt a non-Christian would be reading a book on the Hebrew names of God. It was things like this that created unnecessary distractions from the main point of each chapter. Still, the names of God are a worthy...

The God Who Sees You Look to Him When You Feel Discouraged, Forgotten, or Invisible Tammy Maltby 2012 240 pages   The God Who Sees You begins with the story of Hagar, who fled her abusive slave mistress and fled into the desert where she encountered God. She called Him El-Roi, “The God Who Sees Me.” We all reach points in life where we wonder if God really sees us. Does He see my suffering? Does He see my desperate need? Does He see my invisible heartache? Does He see ME? Tammy Maltby explores the idea of being seen by God and seeing God. She looks at the causes of our blindness that keep us from seeing God—or seeing that God sees us. Beautifully written, backed by Scripture, and tested in her personal experience, the powerful message of The God Who Sees You touches us at our point of need and teaches us to pass this healing message on to others: God sees...
