Holy is His Name, December 22, 2016 Daily Reflection

2015-cross-ciAnd Mary said: My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord

 and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour;

 because he has looked upon the humiliation of his servant. Yes, from now onwards all generations will call me blessed,

 for the Almighty has done great things for me. Holy is his name,

 and his faithful love extends age after age to those who fear him.

Luke 1: 46-50

Holy is the name of Jesus Christ. Close to God, divine, the Messiah, Prince of Peace, ambassador of love, and God. “Every knee should bend at the sound of his name”. So, I can’t understand why it doesn’t? How can people use this unbelievable name in vain? How can a person curse God’s name and disrespect it? Even if a peron doesn’t understand the goodness of God how can he/she disregard this name?

As I say to my students constantly when they take God’s name in vain….”Finish that Prayer!” God deserves our respect when we even utter his name…”And Holy is his name.”
