Blessed Be the Name of the Lord: Revealing the Sacred Names of God

Concordia Publishing House

Paperback 2021-01-26

Publisher Description

The name of God. Is it just a name? The Lord calls us to honor His name, but it is so commonplace for His name to be taken in vain that it has lost its shock value for many. The normalization of the misuse of God's name is apparent in every walk of life. Dishonoring God's name requires no discipline. Use a word contrary to its purpose and meaning and, suddenly, rather than having a specific meaning, a word is cheapened to mean so much more than it was ever intended to mean. Using it to mean more causes it to mean less. The Lord is quite serious about His name. You can see it in the Second Commandment: "You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain" (Exodus 20:7). Yet it is through His name that the Lord does for us and gives to us everything He has promised in Scripture-His name is full of grace and blessing. Reverence for His name is not driven by terror of the consequences for not honoring that name. Reverence for His name is driven by awe that He would pile so much into His name and then give it to us. When the Lord reveals to you all that He has for you in His name, then the fit reaction of faith is to proclaim, "Blessed be the name of the Lord!" Book jacket.
