"Father, make Your Name Holy Among us!" Jesus to teaches us to pray in the 1st petition of The Lord's Prayer. Baptized into Christ we behold and pray for: "The Gracious Gift Of The Father's Name Upon Us!" Sermon text: Deuternomy 10:12-21; 1st Petiton of the Lord's Prayer. Preached at St. Paul's Ev. Lutheran Church and School, Truman, MN on 25-September-2016 by Rev. Nathan J. Rusert. The First Petition...Hallowed be Thy name.
What does this mean? God's name is certainly holy in itself, but we pray in this petition that it may be kept holy among us also.
How is God's name kept holy? God's name is kept holy when the Word of God is taught in its truth and purity, and we, as the children of God, also lead holy lives according to it. Help us to do this, dear Father in heaven! But anyone who teaches or lives contrary to God's Word profanes the name of God among us. Protect us from this, heavenly Father!
