Daily Reading – Genesis 15 – 17 / Matthew 6:1-15
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
Matthew 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
”Hallowed be thy Name.” The term Hallowed is not one we use too often today. However, Hallowed is so important in this prayer. You see God’s name is special. Hallowed means set apart from all others, Holy, Sanctified, or Pure. It’s not like Frank or George. It’s Special. It says in the Ten Commandments in Exodus 20:7, “Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.” In essence He was saying, My Name is Special, treat it so.
Sadly today we all too often here people use Jesus, Oh God, or Christ, as part of comments that have nothing to do with Him.
WHAT DO YOU SAY:
How can we Hallow His name in our Heart
and help others do the same?
