His Name Is Grace

Now the Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there,

and proclaimed the name of the Lord.

 Exodus 34:10

How do you introduce yourself? Most people introduce themselves by giving their name, and they might then say something about themselves.

In our reading from Exodus today, God meets with Moses and pauses to describe Himself so that the people can know who He is. God calls Himself “the Lord” and says He is “the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin” (Exodus 34:6). Similar descriptions of God are included in many places in the Bible. The gracious nature of God is at the heart of His identity.

Knowing who God is, we can take comfort that nothing from our past, present, or future will separate us from God’s love. When we meet the God of grace, we can find peace, knowing that God is forgiving, patient, and loving. God’s grace and forgiveness lead us to know Him, and His patience and lovingkindness faithfully guide us to follow Him forever.

Great God of wonder and grace, thank You that You have made Yourself known to me, and saved me by the work of Your Son, the Lord Jesus on the cross. Thank You, Father. Amen.
