God's Names & Ours

Tonight for the home fellowship I lead, I plan on speaking to our group about the many names that God has given us to describe Himself in the Bible. Here is a great website with many of those names: It includes Scriptural references as well. Some of my favorites are Jehovah-Shalom: "The LORD our Peace," Jehovah-Tsidkenu: "The LORD our Righteousness," and El Roi: "God of Seeing." Since many of the kids in our group don't realize that Biblical names revealed an aspect of that person, I am going to have the meanings of all the kids' names in the group, and we shall see if they can guess who's name means what. For a great site to find out the etymology and history of first names, check out: Two questions: 1. Do you have a favorite name for God? 2. What does your name mean?
