In My Name by Marja Verschoor-Meijers explores the definition of not taking the Lord's name in vain. What exactly does that mean, and as Christians, do we follow that commandment daily? How can you live in today's society and still honour the Lord’s name? This is an insightful look into why it is better to listen to the voice of God’s spirit than follow holy law. It asks why would a caring God demand punishment for taking His name in vain? Why was it so important long ago for people to obey the law of God and receive His blessing, or face the consequences of disobedience; Galatians 3:10. This book uses stories from the Old and New Testaments, and the author's personal experience, to understand why this commandment became law, and how we can interpret this today. How can we show our obedience and love to God every day? There are thought-provoking questions to consider which will completely open your mind to new, life-changing possibilities. Through this remarkable book, you will understand how to open your heart to God's love and blessing.
This remarkable book takes an in-depth look into the meaning of living spiritually with God in your heart. The author asks the question, ‘Do you take the Lord's name in vain?’ The author thoroughly examines this question from a variety of angles. The book is very astute and looks at both Old and New Testament with an open mind. I loved the questions at the end of each chapter, and they make you consider your own lifestyle and values. The author has actually made me realise that attending church every Sunday is not enough. To give love to those who are not so fortunate, and not to judge others is a true way to receive God's blessing, ‘Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?’ An excellent read and recommended to anyone who isn’t afraid to question and explore new possibilities.
