Concern for His Name

Posted on December 29, 2021 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Ezekiel 36:21 But I had concern for my holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations to which they came.

I wrote in the margin of my Bible: “Lord, do you have concern for Your Name in my life?”As others look on, your family, your friends, your co-workers and your neighbors, does the Lord have any concern for His Name in your life?

Do we represent Him well? Do we magnify and reflect His reputation well or do we tarnish it in the eyes of others?

How about among strangers? When someone cuts you off on the expressway or is rude to you at the store or whispers behind your back, do you give God reason to be concerned for His holy Name?

I hope you understand what I am saying and what I am NOT saying. I am NOT saying God is up in heaven wringing His hands, worrying about what to do. I am NOT saying that our areas of failure do not fall under the cleansing blood of our Savior. THEY DO.

If those around you were to describe your God, how close would they be to the truth?

Ezekiel 39:7 And my holy name I will make known in the midst of my people Israel, and I will not let my holy name be profaned anymore. And the nations shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
Ezekiel 39:25 …I will be jealous for my holy name.My simple point is …

Do you represent the Savior well? Is His name beautiful and wonderful and glorious in your life?
