The Names of God - Jehovah-M'Kaddesh

Leviticus 20:1-8

Over the past several weeks we have been looking at the various ways that God has revealed Himself to us in Scripture indicated by His names. Each name that God uses for Himself reveals to us an aspect of His character that helps us to know Him better.

Tonight we will look at another of His names. He is Jehovah M'Kaddesh = Jehovah is the One who sanctifies us. Read: Leviticus 20:1-8

Leviticus is the book of life, a book explaining the walk and worship of a people already redeemed. The name Jehovah-M'Kaddesh is used seven times in three chapters.

I. "Sanctify" = Use and Definition

II. Jehovah-M'kaddesh Is Sanctified

III. Application for the Believer

God demands holiness…we cannot be holy in and of ourselves. So how can we meet His demand? He is our Jehovah M'Kaddesh…He is the One who sanctifies us. It begins with our salvation, it continues daily as we live for Him, and it will see its fulfillment in glory when we become like Him.
