The fourth word provides us with a bridge between the commandments relating to our worship of God and the guidelines for doing life with other image bearers. God reminds His people they were created for work and for rest to worship Him and to provide rest for others.
Welcome to the fourth week and the third command in our study of the Ten Commandments. Have you ever quietly discarded a name tag without wearing it when someone spelled your name incorrectly? If you have a unique spelling of your name, you’ve probably at least considered doing this. We want to be known by the correct name — and have it spelled correctly! Our names are part of our identities, so naturally they become a topic of conversation. This week we're going to discuss names, specifically how we honor the name and character of the Lord.
In our study of Malachi today, we're exploring how we honor the name of God — the Lord of hosts — in our lives.
