5/29/13 Daily Devotion

Exodus 20:7 “You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

So many people take the Lord’s name in vain. They throw out profanity and include God’s name within their filthy words. Why? What is the point? How would we feel if our name was used in the same manner? Are we trying to make a point? Are we trying to convince God to act on our behalf, or are we just acting in ignorance? To use the name of God in an improper manner is an act of ignorance and disrespect. For each occurrence, we will be held accountable. For each utterance, we will have to give an answer. For each syllable, we will be judged by God. The misuse of God’s name is a sign of contempt for His presence and power. It shows the exact manner of our respect for Him. What do your words say about your relationship with God?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me present a glorious picture of You through my life, so others will come and find the same forgiveness You have so graciously given to me.

  1. Dr. Jeff, always love your posts. I have been trying to increase my readership by adding tags, etc. and was told that if I choose a title that gives a brief synopsis of what the post contains, it is more apt to entice readers. I don’t in any way mean to criticize, but have noticed that your posts are usually called Daily Devotion but no other title. Just a suggestion. Supposedly search engines pick it up and spread it around better, too. Hope this did not offend, and I am in no way any expert on this! Just trying to help a fellow Christian blogger and also trying to learn myself! Blessings.
