Holy and Reverend Is His Name

Holy and Reverend Is His Name, February 4He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name. Psalm 111:9. FLB 41.1We are never in any manner to treat lightly the titles or appellations of the Deity…. The angels veil their faces in His presence. The cherubim and the bright and holy seraphim approach His throne with solemn reverence. How much more should we finite, sinful beings, come in a reverent manner before the Lord, our Maker! FLB 41.2I saw that God’s holy name should be used with reverence and awe. FLB 41.3Some think it a mark of humility to pray to God in a common manner…. They profane His name by needlessly and irreverently mingling with their prayers the words, “God Almighty”—awful, sacred words, which should never pass the lips except in subdued tones and with a feeling of awe. FLB 41.4Those who realize the greatness and majesty of God, will take His name on their lips with holy awe. He dwelleth in light unapproachable; no man can see Him and live. FLB 41.5If Christ were on earth today, surrounded by those who bear the title of “Reverend” or “Right Reverend,” would He not repeat His saying, “Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ”? Matthew 23:10. The Scripture declares of God, “Holy and reverend is his name.” To what human being is such a title befitting? How little does man reveal of the wisdom and righteousness it indicates! How many of those who assume this title are misrepresenting the name and character of God! Alas, how often have worldly ambition, despotism, and the basest sins been hidden under the broidered garments of a high and holy office! FLB 41.6“The name of the Lord” is “merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, … forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin.” Exodus 34:5-7. Of the church of Christ it is written “This is the name wherewith she shall be called, The Lord our righteousness.” Jeremiah 33:16. This name is put upon every follower of Christ. FLB 41.7
