Lift Him Up has praised, revered, glorified and lifted up our Creator’s title name – God, since August of 2014. To do any less in our everyday-God-given-lives, is blaspheme. I invite you now to “Break The Chain” of misusing His name!
“Break The Chain” is a format where you post your personal commitment to refrain from the misuse of OMG! and Oh My G**! Here is the place you can talk about any misuse of God’s name you have seen or heard, and how you feel about it.
Perhaps you can share how you or someone you know broke free of this habit.
We need to stand up for God’s name!
If not you then who? Who will stand up for God’s commands? Who will stand up for God to preserve the holiness of His name and break the chain of passing on OMGs to BFFs as they LOL? Simply clicking the delete button on specific texts will shine light on your soul.
Be an example to others. Here’s how:
- Commit – Stopping all usage of OMG! and Oh My G**! shows respect for who God is. This action can lead others to follow your example.
- Change – Converting your irreverent communication skills to words offering exact description shows you care how others perceive you. No one likes a disrespectful approach.
- Surrender – Turning over any past sinful misuse of God’s name to Him who gave us voice in the first place, demonstrates believing in Him for salvation.
Leave your comment in the space below. Perhaps you want to share a misuse you heard, witnessed, or read. There are a lot of crazy examples out there. I saw tees advertising a city using OMG! as a line. I bought a purse with OMG stitched on the outside, to show as an example when I speak. There was a food store that dangled large signs from the ceiling professing OMG what great deals they have.
Let’s honor God properly, not with inappropriate slang that society deems acceptable.
Demonstrating the actions of Commit, Change and Surrender, encourages us to remember where we stand on truth – God’s name must be kept holy. Persistently embracing these actions helps us continue the good habit of respecting His title name G-O-D.
