Jesus said to pray in this manner: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed (or, sanctify, make holy) Your name” (Matt. 6:9).
But is there more to God’s name than just… God? How can we make holy the name of God when we don’t really know what that name is and what His name reveals about the nature of God?
For example, in the Old Testament God our Father is also known as:
Jehovah-tsidkenu – Jehovah our Righteousness
Jehovah-m’kaddesh – Jehovah Who Sanctifies
Jehovah-shammah – Jehovah is There
Jehovah-shalom – Jehovah is Peace
Jehovah-rophe – Jehovah Heals
Jehovah-jireh – Jehovah Sees or His Provision Shall be Seen
Jehovah-nissi – Jehovah our Banner
Jehovah-rohi – Jehovah our Shepherd
Want to know more about God’s names and His nature? Then keep listening.
