If you’re on a first name basis with a person, this makes them more accessible and approachable. This is precisely why God has shared his personal name with us. He gives us the freedom to draw close to him and call him by name.
(1) We can know God and call him by Name.
(2) God moves toward us, even when we feel like he should move farther away.
(3) We are to reflect God’s character in our own lives.
(4) We can behold God most clearly in the face of Christ.
(5) We must seek God’s cleansing in order to have a relationship with Him.
