"PROPER REPRESENTATION"

Rev. Lon Lorton

February 19, 2017

Exodus 20:7 and Philippians 2:9-11

God is deadly serious about blasphemy.

He clearly lets us know what His own name means.

  • What He is
  • Who He is

Vanity is:

  • Empty
  • Purposeless
  • False
  • Futile

How we use God’s name has to do with our representation of Him.

  • As His children, we bear His name.

How well am I representing the Lord and bearing the name of Jesus in my relationships?

What message is my life truly shouting to the world?

“The worst blasphemy is not profanity.  The worst blasphemy is lip service.”  [D. Elton Trueblood]
