just a precaution today as you go about your daily worship routine, going about telling others “Merry Christmas” and “Have a blessed day!” The Lord despises having His own name taken in vain, where our actions and attitudes don’t line up with the God whose name we have taken, or we use His name in ways contrary to His revealed nature.
Christian you have an incredible responsibility to show others what God is like through your words and deeds. If there ever has been a worse charge laid at the feet of Christians than hypocrisy, I don’t know what it is, simply because we are the hands and feet of Jesus. And we are accountable to Him as such. You don’t get “time off” from being a Christian.
But good news, we don’t have to do this on our own. We have the Holy Spirit living within us, guiding and assisting our our souls. He helps us to live as we have been called. We serve and enjoy serving the One who calls us because we have been called by His name. So let us praise and worship the One who called us today. Let us sing and rejoice because we have been found worthy in His sight to speak His Name. Merry CHRISTmas everyone!
