Tonight was Cookie Baking Night. In attendance this evening: Allison, Rylar, and Enzo.
Tonight we made pumpkin bars.
Uncle Greg came home just as we were finishing up our Bible time. We were all eager to see him.
Tonight we finished our book God's Names by Sally Michael.
We reviewed all the names of God that we learned:
Elohim: Strong Creator
Yahweh: Self-Existent, Unchanging
El Shaddai: God Almighty
El Elyon: The Most High
El Kana: Jealous God
Jehovah El Emeth: The LORD God of Truth
El Roi: The God Who Sees
Jehovah Shammah: The LORD is There
A Strong Tower
Jehovah-Sabaoth: The LORD of Hosts
Jehovah-Jireh: The LORD Will Provide
Jehova-Or: The LORD is Light
Judge of the Whole Earth
Jehovah-Maginnenu: The LORE is Our Defense
Jehova-Rohi: The Lord is My Shepherd
Lamb of God, Savior
The author reminded us that "God's names are more than just names. They tell us what God is like. Knowing God's names is a good way to understand who God is. And understanding who God is can help us to trust Him. But just knowing God's names doesn't make us a child of God. You can know all about God but not love Him or His commands." We read about Paul in the book of Acts. He knew about God, but it wasn't until he met Jesus and had his sins forgiven that he truly knew and worshiped God.
It was a fitting way to end tonight's Cookie Baking Night.
As usual, a fun time was had by all.
