The Redemptive Names of God
What’s in a name? Much, when it comes to God’s names. Whenever God wanted to reveal more about how he relates to us, he did it through a name. He has a name for himself for any and every situation we encounter. Let’s learn his names and discover the life, peace, and power that comes through knowing God!
Jehovah Jireh: The LORD Our Provider | June 26
Guest Speaker Brother Timothy
God has already provided everything we need in Jesus. He longs for us to experience him as our provider in the day-to-day of our lives—so we must understand that his provision is often the outcome of our obedience. Let’s unpack the story of Abraham and Isaac to discover that God is our provider!
Jehovah Rapha: The LORD Who Heals | July 3
Some today believe that God no longer heals, but the Bible shows otherwise. God heals—then, now, and forever! He can make well whatever may be broken in our bodies, our lives, or our world. Let’s explore the story of Moses and the Israelites meeting God as their healer and uncover all that it means for us today.
Jehovah Nissi: The LORD My Banner | July 10
When a sports team wins a championship, one of the first things they do is hang a victory banner. Banners denote victory, and we can know God as our banner—through him we overcome what the enemy sets against us! Let’s look to the story of the Israelites battle against the Amalekites and be reminded that, even in our brutal battles, our victory flag still waves.
Jehovah Shalom: The LORD Is Peace | July 17
God has a name that speaks directly to our need for calm, security, and stability. The Lord is peace! It’s easy to assume that peace means the absence of problems, but true peace is marked by the presence of God amid our problems. Let’s examine into the story of Gideon and focus on how God brings peace is the midst of our battles.
Jehovah Rohi: The LORD My Shepherd | July 24
Guest Speaker Jeremie Kilgore
It’s easy for us to trust God to take us to heaven, but sometimes we are less certain that he has our back on earth. We trust him as our savior but not as our shepherd. Scripture shows us that God is our shepherd, and we can trust him to guide and care for us. Let’s dive into Psalm 23 and discover how we can submit to God as dependent sheep.
Jehovah Tsidkenu: The LORD Our Righteousness | July 31
If we lose our appetite for physical food, it’s usually a sign that something is wrong. In similar fashion, when we no longer hunger for the righteousness of God, it can be an indicator that we are spiritually unwell. In Christ, we have positional righteousness, but we are also called to practice righteousness. Let’s lean into the book of Jeremiah to understand not only God’s standard of righteousness but also what righteousness looks like in practice.
Jehovah Shammah: The LORD Is There | August 7
The Book of Ezekiel closes with a vision of a city that will be named “The Lord is There.” This name bears witness to the presence and power of the God who will dwell there. While this name looks forward to the future, it also brings hope for today. In it we are reassured that God will never abandon us! Wherever we are, whatever the circumstances, whatever the need…God is always there! Let’s study Ezekiel’s vision and understand more deeply the God who is always there for us!
