About Who Are You, God? Series
As we consider His names in order to know Him, we pray He will reveal His character, His ways and His outpouring to humanity. Who are you, God?
The very last words of Jesus’ prayer for His followers had to do with this matter of LOVE. Here He reveals that the purpose for knowing God’s name – and by this, revealing His Character and Being – is for LOVE.
Knowing God’s names causes one to LOVE Him! And Jesus’ purpose and goal are revealed in this one verse: to introduce us to the great Father, who has endured our accusations and misunderstandings since Adam.
I will continue to make (You) known, that the love which You have bestowed upon Me may be in them (felt in their hearts) and that I (Myself) may be in them.
John 17:26 AMPC
