Throughout this week we have looked into the name of God that was ascribed to Himself. God’s name teaches us about who He is. We first hear of this name when Moses finds a bush on fire in the desert, yet not burning. In turn, a conversation about God’s longing to save his people from Egypt ensues.
Then Moses said to God, “If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?” God said to Moses, “I am who I am.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel: ‘I am has sent me to you.’”
The name of God shows us who He is.
Can someone elaborate on and describe what the name, “I am who I am,” indicates about God?
Is there any time in life where you feel like you are somewhat similar to this type of persona found in the nature of God? If so, explain. If not, explain.
As we found out in the previous week, our fall came when we desired to be better and superior to God. Do we still do this today?
I Am who I Am indicates the pinnacle of all things in existence. Our God is this.
Do we try to take this same status and if so, how?
Read Deuteronomy 6:13-15
“It is the Lord your God you shall fear. Him you shall serve and by his name you shall swear. You shall not go after other gods, the gods of the peoples who are around you— for the Lord your God in your midst is a jealous God—lest the anger of the Lord your God be kindled against you, and he destroy you from off the face of the earth.”
Why is it that God, jealous for his own glory and name, tells us that we are to worship Him?
Why would God get angry if we were to worship other gods and have idols that we spend our time, money, and lives on?
In turn we must ask, who or what is the greatest in our life?
Pray to dismiss
