As Christians, we are called to be image bearers of the Living God — we are to showcase His life to the world. In short, we are to bear His Name well.
In Scripture, there are two critical passages concerning what it means to bear God’s name—the Ten Commandments and the command to not take God’s Name in vain, and Jesus’ model prayer to “hallow” the Name of God.
In this episode, we listen to a portion of the final study in my “Behold Our God” series, looking at the majesty and loveliness of Christ through the Names of God. In the second half of the message, we discuss what it means to bear God’s Name rightly in our lives (and the secret to do so), how to “hallow” (keep His Name holy), and what it actually means to not take His Name in vain (it’s far more than swearing).
