Some without Christ verbally take the Lord’s name in vain. Many believers practically take His name in vain by living void of the vision He purposed for their life.
I remember playing racquetball with Dr. Tom Malone of a church and Bible College years ago in Pontiac, MI. after our game we heard a man take God’s name in vain and I quoted Exodus 20:7 to him.
“Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.”
Tom said later: “Jim that guy was bigger than both of us.” I told Tom that I was quoting God’s word and that He would have to stand up to that man because I did my part. Now this post is a rebuke to believers who live a vain life without Christ’s direction.
“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” Proverbs 29:18
Some believers think that living selfishly only affects their own life. God tells us that a life without a vision sends people around him to hell.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
God does not call every believer to be an evangelist but He does command every believer to do the work of an evangelist. The Great Commission is for every believer.
Did you pray this morning for a divine appointment with someone that the Holy Spirit is working on or for Him to work on someone you want to see come to salvation, and the boldness to speak out?
