Spurgeon: We must not give the Lord a new name nor invent a new nature


Praise the Lord!
Praise, O servants of the 
Lord,
praise the name of the 
Lord!

Blessed be the name of the Lord
from this time forth and forevermore!

Charles H Spurgeon on Psalm 113:1-2

Gods.nameBy mentioning the name, the Psalmist would teach us to bless each of the attributes of the Most High, which are as it were the letters of his name; not quarrelling with his justice or his severity, nor servilely dreading his power, but accepting him as we find him revealed in the inspired word and by his own acts, and loving him and praising him as such. We must not give the Lord a new name nor invent a new nature, for that would be the setting up of a false god.
