God loves to hear us use His names in our worship

The Names of God

Learning the names of God has increased my understanding of His character, built my faith, and expanded my capacity for praise and worship. (God loves to hear us use His names in our worship!) I hope that you, too, will find these names a benefit to your spiritual life.

For those of you looking for more of the Hebrew and Greek names used for God in the Old and New Testaments, along with explanations and references, try Lambert Dolphin’s “The Names of God”.
