Third Commandment

“You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain. Ex 20:7

This commandment not only prohibits making false pledges and using common swear words, but it also instructs us not to treat the name of God lightly or carelessly, without considering its weighty significance. When we casually mention God in everyday conversations, make frivolous appeals to Him, or recklessly repeat His name, we dishonour Him. The name of God is “holy and reverend” (Psalm 111:9). We should reflect on His greatness, purity, and holiness, allowing our hearts to be deeply impressed by His exalted character. Therefore, we should speak His holy name with reverence and solemnity.
