Have you ever met a Christian who was reclusive? I don’t mean they live in a remote mountain cabin, some may even live in suburbs or cities and have busy jobs. It’s not their location that makes them reclusive, but their attitude. Maybe, they have been burnt by a pastor or church. They stop going to church and develop walls so they don’t get hurt again. This is not God’s plan for our lives.
“for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God.” (1 Peter 1:23, NASB95)
So, you have believed in your heart that God raised Jesus from the grave and confessed Jesus as Lord…now what? “that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.” (Romans 10:9–10, NASB95)

We’ve been looking at the different names of God that are translated into English from Hebrew. They reveal God’s character and teach us more about Him.

We learn more about who God is and how he relates to us.
