Dear Mosaic Family, Tomorrow we turn our attention to one of the most curious commandments, #3, "You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain." Indeed, this commandment prohibits the flippant use of God's name to mark surprise ('oh my G_d!') or shock or worse, but it's so much more than that.
In order to begin to understand the depth of this commandment, we really need to understand the power of names, and names truly are powerful. Businesses have learned this a long time ago and globally recognized names like Apple, Google, Coca-Cola, Samsung, and McDonald's invest billions each year to build, protect, and expand the reach of their brands. Companies spend seemingly disproportionate sums to hire "brand ambassadors" to promote and embody their corporate identity in appearance, demeanor, values, and ethics.
So what does the idea of a "brand ambassador" have to do with the third commandment? Everything! Join us tomorrow as we discuss the profound implications of this commandment on our lives as followers of the One who bears the name above all names, Jesus Christ.
See you tomorrow!
Praying for you, Pastor Jan
