YHWH The Lord
Do We Seek to Know the True Nature of God?
Sometimes we view God through the lens of a consumer: What can God do for me? Sometimes we create our own versions of God based upon what makes sense to us in light of our experiences. Regardless of good intentions, if we focus on the LORD's characteristics that we enjoy while neglecting attributes of God that are difficult to understand or believe, we fabricate and worship false images of God Almighty and bow down to idols of our own making.
Thankfully, due to His unending grace, the LORD has revealed Himself to mankind through His inspired Scripture and Jesus, who is the Word made flesh (John 1:14) — the exact representation of the Father (Col. 1:15). As we study the God of the Bible, we come to know Him rather than an idol. As we find God and meditate upon His nature, He cultivates love within our hearts for Himself.
YHWH, The LORD, is not designed to be a self-help, human-centered, life-application Bible study; rather, the entire focus is upon the person of YHWH and unearthing truths about His uncreated, unchanging, inexhaustible, self-sustaining, personal, and eternal attributes.
