Called by God’s Name

By Lynn Metier There are numerous Scriptural references to being called by God’s name. The prophet Jeremiah claimed: “I have been called by Thy name, O LORD God of hosts.” (Jeremiah 15:16b) What does it mean to be called by the name of the LORD? While the Hebrew name Jeremiah comes from 2 words which can be translated “Yahweh will be exalted”, surely the Old Testament prophet must have known that to be called by God’s name had more profound implications than just in the translation of his name. And what about today’s “Christians”? Have we looked past the...

God Calling

Recently we noted that God called to Adam, when he was hiding in the garden, to ask: “Where are you?” A study through the New Testament reveals that God continues to call out to mankind for many reasons and purposes. In Matthew 2:15, the Old Testament prophet Hosea is quoted as saying: “Out of Egypt did I call My Son.” (Hosea 11:1) Just as God the Father called Jesus out of Egypt, so He continues to call today to those who would be His children to come out of the world; but, as Jesus later stated: “many are called,...

Where are you?

The first question recorded in the Bible is the serpent’s query to Eve regarding God’s word, leading her to doubt God’s provision (Genesis 3:1). The next question asked is God seeking man after sin has resulted in a drastic change in man’s relationship with his Creator. When God called, “Where are you?”(Genesis 3:9), of course He knew where Adam was, but Adam needed to assess not just his physical location and status – hiding from God – but also his mental, emotional, and spiritual conditions – of fear, shame, and death (that is, separation from God’s fellowship – v.10)....

Thy Kingdom Come

Romans 12:2 tells us that we are not to be “conformed to this world”, but “transformed by the renewing of your mind.” The NLT renders the verse this way: “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” This is not a suggestion, but is ESSENTIAL, not only to first becoming a born-again believer, but also to achieving and maintaining a victorious Christian life. So how does...

  • Cleansing … It’s An Inside Job
    It is significant to note that in the days of Hezekiah’s reformation (2 Chron 29:1-5), they began the cleansing of the house of the Lord in the inner part. Before there can be any pure work of God accomplished, our inner man must be cleansed. Paul writes about cleansing ourselves “from all filthiness of the […]
  • Upright Living
    “Shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.” The Hebrew root of the English word “upright” means straight, even, or right. Webster’s Dictionary defines upright as a strict adherence to moral principles. As followers of Jesus we, above all people, are to be honest and scrupulous in all of our ways. The psalmist […]
  • Are you Listening?
    As soon as He was alone, His followers, along with the twelve, began asking Him about the parables. And He was saying to them, “To you has been given the mystery of the kingdom of God, but those who are outside get everything in parables, so that while seeing, they may see and not perceive, […]
