Episode 068 – The Lord’s Prayer Pt 4: Holy Be Your Name
Key Passage(s): Matthew 6:9; Exodus 3:15; Ezekiel 36:23, 26-27
Hallowed be your name. What in the world does it mean to “hallow” someone’s name? And what is the significance of God’s name? Furthermore, why does Jesus tell us it needs to be hallowed in the first place? As with every aspect ofthe Lord’s Prayer, this one is loaded with meaning and rooted in Old Testament stories in order to help us understand the absolute necessity of God’s name being recognized in the world, and how our lives bear witness to the holiness of His great name.
