Ever wonder what the many names of God in the Biblical literature actually mean? How can knowing the meaning of the names of God in Hebrew help us be bold and fearless for the Gospel?

Liz Giertz is a U.S. Army combat Veteran turned Army wife and mother who encourages Christian women to find God’s beauty underneath the scratches, dents, and dings in life. She regularly hosts a multi-contributor feature at My Messy Desk where women dig into the Bible to discover more of God through Biblical word studies.

Liz has graciously invited me (certified Bible history and word geek!) to help discover what does Jehovah Mekoddishkem mean? And how can knowing what it means help us be bold and fearless for the Gospel?

Christian women have a bigger impact on the faith of others than we think

Most of us Christian women lead very busy lives taking care of our families, homes, employers, friends, family, and neighbors. We also routinely encounter faith conversations where we might get stuck not knowing how to answer a question, or we are fearful we will say the wrong thing. Our evangelism may not look to us like we are making an impact. But this is where we are wrong – it does. We carry more impact than what we realize.

Women are typically our children’s primary caregivers. We serve in children’s ministry and women’s ministry. Women are highly relational, nurturing people by God’s design. So we are usually the ones out in the world every day making sure needs are met. We are the comforters and counselors in life.

Therefore we often have far more more opportunities to share the Good News with everyday people than we realize. Knowing not only how God has revealed Himself, but Who He has revealed Himself as through His names in the Old Testament can be a useful tool to more confident faith conversations.
