Who is this God that we Worship?

The Tetragrammaton Yahweh intended to be prono...

I got a different glimpse into His Majesty today when I read Exodus 15.  This passage talks about the greatness of his majesty early and compares this God to all gods.  He performs great deeds and His Holiness is majestic.  This God is worthy of worship.

Here the LORD is capitalized and that means the root Hebrew word is YAHWEH who is the great I AM of Exodus 3:14.  The God who was and is and will be forever!  YAHWEH reflects the personal, caring, and shepherding nature of God who is among His people who guides and heals.  He creates us and protects us.  He is our warrior.

13“You have led in your steadfast love the people whom you have redeemed;
you have guided them by your strength to your holy abode.

Then we come to this verse 13 and the chapter really opens up to who He is to us and what he does.  His (steadfast) love is consistent towards us–never changing nor vascilating.  Our redemption is ALL His action and work–no work is done by His people for their redemption.  Our works are not acceptable for redemption–only Jesus’ work is.  Lastly, we have a promise that we will be guided by Him in the path we should go –ultimately, holiness, perfection, and Home(Heaven itself).
