God’s glory and name

His name and glory

God’s glory and His name come together.

Ponder this truth: When we use the name of Jesus to pray we come into the presence of His glory. When we use the name of Jesus we bring glory to Him. Jesus has given His believers the authority of His name. But there is one condition as follows:

Exodus 20: 7 You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

James 4:3-4 New Living Translation (NLT)

And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure.

You adulterers![a] Don’t you realize that friendship with the world makes you an enemy of God? I say it again: If you want to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of God.

Footnotes:

4:4 Greek You adulteresses!
