God’s Name: Card and Picture

October 12, 2009

13x18cm Picture

“You, whose name is Jehovah, you alone are the Most High over all the earth.”

Psalm 83:18

God has a name! And he tells us his name over 7,000 times in the Bible. When you are getting to know someone, the first thing you usually learn about them is their name. How would you feel if you told someone your name over and over but they never used it, calling you by some title instead? Would you feel that person wanted to know you and get close to you? The creator of the universe wants you to know his name and to use it. He is using the Bible to introduce himself to you.

In your copy of the Bible, if it has “LORD” instead of “Jehovah” at Psalm 83:18, look for a footnote or an appendix that explains why God’s personal name has been replaced by a title that does not appear in this verse in the original Bible manuscripts. See what you think of the reason…


The spacing above shows this design at 5×7″, but recently I bought some card blanks in this size – or the metric equivalent of it, which is 128x178mm, so I have adjusted the size of the card below (in a slightly different design) to accommodate this. Printing on pre-scored card blanks is a great convenience because it saves on scoring and cutting time and ensures size accuracy. A design like this needs to be printed on a borderless setting if you are using card blanks.

128x178mm Card

This is also a popular picture size, (see picture on the easel above) but again, the metric equivalent is a little different. I like to use the “frameless” clip frames for my printed pictures and the ones I buy locally have 5×7″ /13x18cm printed on the label. The frames, however, are 13x18cm in size. If you print at 5×7″, you will end up with a picture that is too small for your frame. Yes, I learned that the hard way!  So measure your frames to ensure that you are printing at the correct size where the label has both imperial and metric measurements. Both the card and the picture are included in the download.
