Hallowed Be Your Name
SPEAKER: Troy Champ
In the second verse of The Lord’s Prayer, Jesus calls us to bring glory to God’s name. When we say to the world, “I am a Christian”, we say “This is what it looks like to live a life with Christ.” Are you living up to His name? Does your life contrast the world around you? Do you talk differently? Do you talk about people differently?
As followers of Jesus we must remember, God trusts us with His reputation.
Our attitudes and actions are an advertisement to His character, to His nature. Like it or not, as others watch how we weather a storm, how we treat our spouses, how we live our lives, we powerfully hold God’s reputation in our hands.
He calls us to show His glory to the world, but God doesn’t ask us to do this alone. Instead of trying harder to do better, we can put our efforts into growing closer to Him. The closer our relationship to God, the more we will be transformed from the inside out and the more you and the world will see the kind of God He is.
Pray that God’s name will be hallowed in your environment.
Pray that you would become the best person God can make you.
Pray that God will reveal Himself to you, despite the people who are around you.
