How is God´s name hallowed?

Share |

God’s name is hallowed, when

  1. God’s Word is taught clearly and purely (pure doctrine).
    Joh. 17:17: Sanctify them though thy truth; thy Word is truth.

    Jer. 23:28: He that hath my Word, let him speak my word faithfully.

  2. We live as God’s obedient children according to His Word (righteous life).
    Matt. 5:16: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

    Luther: “God will not hear anything more dear to Him than that His honor and praise is exalted above everything else, and His Word is taught in its purity and is esteemed precious and dear.”
