God’s Name
The third commandment, not to take God's name in vain, is often viewed as not using God's name to swear. This is true but misses so much of the heart of this command. The third commandment defines God's name, reveals a lot about God's character, and instructs us how to relate with God. You might be surprised by a fresh look at an often misunderstood command.

    You Are What You Worship
    Whatever "gods" or "idols" we worship shape our lives over time. God warns how damaging our "American Idols" like greed, power, control, sex, and so many other temptations can be to warp the Imagine of God within us. So God is jealous for our worship, not how we define jealously in our fallen world as the control of an insecure lover, but because God passionately desires for our lives to be shaped into the Image of God. We'll also be challenged by how our lives can leave a legacy of blessing or curses to future generations.

    We're learning from the experiences of people in the Old Testament this summer. We live in a moment of human history filled with fear about the economy, political instability, broken relationships, terrorist attacks, diseases, temptations, and more.
