When you hear the name… Adolf Hitler, Babe Ruth, Oprah Winfrey, Tom Cruise, Tiger Woods, Marilyn Monroe, United States of America, Bethesda Presbyterian Church, JESUS CHRIST immediately thoughts and/or images (good or bad) immediately come to your mind. Names are powerful and important. If you don’t believe me, call someone by the wrong name or misspell their name and notice that person’s reaction. :>)
Names carry weight, meaning, importance, and significance! Names are useful because they allow us to label and remember the different people, places and things. Speaking of "names"....we are going to begin a new Sunday School Bible study this Sunday. It is called "The Power of God's Names". This is a DVD based Bible study led by Dr. Tony Evans. In the Bible, God reveals Himself to us by His names. Each of His many names reveals important information about His character, His attributes, Who He is and what He does. As we learn and know the names of God, we can better know His character and His capacity. This allows us to know Him better, trust Him more, love Him greater, and help us discover peace and power in His covenantal care for us.
This study begins Sunday, Nov 23rd . However, you can join us at anytime over the next two months. Each week we focus on a different name of God. The class meets at 10:10am in McArn Room #33
