Message Notes

Cypress Creek Church — Pastor David Bamberry

Building Strong Family Values – Part 3 

“And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today.  Teach them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you  are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up.” Deuteronomy 6:6-7 

Taking God Seriously 

“You must not misuse the name of the Lord your God.  

The Lord will not let you go unpunished if you misuse his name.”  

Exodus 20:7 (The 3rd Commandment) 

What's in a Name? 

• Reputation 

• Character 

• Authority 

Ways God’s Name Can Be Misused 

1. Using God's Name to INSULT

2. Using God's Name to INDULGE OURSELVES. 

"Do not make a promise in my name if you do not intend to keep it. That brings disgrace on my name. I am the LORD your God." Leviticus 19:12 GNT 

3. Using God's Name to INTIMIDATE

4. Using God's Name to IMPRESS

They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny Him. Titus 1:16 NIV 

5. Using God's Name IMPULSIVELY. 

The Lord says: “These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips,  but their hearts are far from me." Isaiah 29:13a NIV 

"...I the Lord will punish anyone who misuses my name!" Exodus 20:7b GNT

How Can I Use God’s Name Correctly 

1. REVERENCE God’s Name continually. 

Give unto the Lord the glory due to His Name. Psalm 29:2 NKJV 

For you have heard my vows, O God, to praise you every day, and you have given me the  blessings you reserve for those who reverence your name. Psalm 61:5 TLB

2. REPRESENT God’s Name clearly. 

But God’s truth stands firm like a great rock, and nothing can shake it. It is a foundation stone  with these words written on it: “The Lord knows those who are really his,” and “A person who calls himself a Christian should not be doing things that are wrong.” 2 Timothy 2:19 TLB 

"Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the Name of the Lord Jesus." Colossians 3:17 NIV 

3. RELY ON God’s Name completely. 

"No wonder we are happy in the Lord! For we are trusting Him. We trust his holy Name." Psalm 33:21 TLB 

"Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by  which we must be saved." Acts 4:12 NIV 

But these are written so that you may continue to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son  of God, and that by believing in Him you will have life by the power of his Name. John 20:31
