To not take God’s name in vain is about a lifestyle of genuine godliness. Watch this short vlog then listen to the full podcast of the same name for more details.
We typically think of people using God's name in a flippant, careless or disrespectful way as taking His name in vain. True, but this is NOT the point of the 3rd Commandment. It has become painfully easy to disrespect God. What should we be looking out for?
Loving your enemies is to want good and not harm to come to them. Jesus mapped this out for us, especially in the last days of his life before his crucifixion. Jesus not only taught us in detail how to love our enemies, he showed us in living color how to profoundly care for them. He literally "walked the walk" – all the way to Calvary. As we look back upon the death and resurrection of Jesus, we will see how he was the instruction manual for loving your enemies. How did Jesus show devotion to those who were devious and hostile, attachment to those who antagonized him and affection for those who became his adversaries?
