Let your name be held holy. ( Exodus 20 v 7 )
''Hallowed be your name'',one translation has, ''Let your name be held holy''so what do you think this means?, let it be seem as something that should be above the common use,it is special.Let us remember that Gods name is not just a label,but it speaks of the whole person.The one who is awesome in holiness, who expects to be treated with deep reverence and respect. It should not roll of our lips as a swear word,or a word that is of no consequence.It is sad to hear Christians taking Gods name in vain,Exodus 20 v 7 reminds us that there is consequences ,it displeases God.In Psalm 9 v 10 we read, 'Those who know your name put their trust in you', ''It means that those who know what God is like,those who know the nature and character of God, will put their trust in Him'. Jehovah-jireh .......The Lord will provide. Jehovah- rapha.........The Lord that healeth. Jehovah-Shalom.......The Lord our peace Jehovah- ra-ah...........The Lord our Shepherd. Jehovah-shammah.....The Lord is present.
