God’s Name is Holy

Then Moses said to God, “Indeed, when I come to the children of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they say to me, ‘What is His name?’ what shall I say to them?” And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’ ” Exodus 3:13-14 NKJV

I believe that over time, we have forgotten how holy God’s name is. I know I do not give Him the respect He deserves. Not only was Moses asked to take off His shoes because of holy ground, I also believe that God’s name itself commands our respect. There are a lot of studies out there that interpret and explain the original Hebrew names of God, such as Yhwh and Elohim. The important thing in these studies is that those names have meanings, both when said and when looked at in writing.

God is our Lord, our Creator, our Saviour. He had many titles that are all meant to exalt the one true God. God says it best to Moses.

Moreover God said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: ‘The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is  My name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations.’ Exodus 3:15 NKJV

We need to respect and honor that God is who He says He is. His name is a memorial to all of us.
