What’s in a name? Names have a strong meaning that can often surprise us when we take the time to understand it’s meaning. The same is true for God. We want to look at just 4 of the many different names for God, and I believe it will surprise us and grow us to become more personal with God.
About The Artwork
In this image we have an old painting rendered in a new medium, pixelation. We have a modern typeface reading “God” and an old lettering style reading “Names”. When we think of God the Father and hear the names spoken in an old language, it’s easy to imagine God living in the past when. In reality, God is ever present, deeply engaged, and relevant a thousand years ago and relevant today. The contrast and combination of old and new is what is signified in this image.
