On caregivers, faith, family, and writing…

TA Google search for Names of God beginning with “T” produced several pages, but after eliminating those that began with the or thy, most of the remaining names were related in some way to true.

And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.      1 John 5:20

In this verse, the Apostle John declared the God of the Bible to be the true God as opposed to the idols worshipped by the nations that Man holding arms up in praise against golden sunsetsurrounded Israel. He also affirmed the divinity of Jesus and the unity that believers can have with God the Father and God the Son.

And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.      John 17:3

This verse is from the passage known as the “High Priestly Prayer” that Jesus prayed on the night before He was crucified. One of the pulpit commentaries from BibleHub.com says of this verse: “that it was calculated to strengthen his disciples, to allow them to hear once from his own lips the solemn claim to Messiahship.”

Other names and characteristics of God that begin with T are:

I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser.      John 15:1

Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.      John 14:5-6

You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am.      John 13:13

And I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb.      Revelation 21:22

Blessings,
