What's in a Name?

From Series: Pathway to Freedom

Exodus 20:7  (ID: 1690)

Names are important. This is true not only of people but also, even especially, of God. In Scripture, God’s name is revealed as something uniquely precious. In expressing His name, Alistair Begg explains, God declares not only its precious nature but also His character—His greatness and all that He is and does. His name’s power is found in the truth it contains about Him. Therefore, we must take care in how we use it, avoiding all blasphemy, perjury, and hypocrisy.


7“You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.
