Seriously, STOP using it!

I am not sure if I could write it any clearer, but STOP using it!

Do you have any idea what it means? Or any idea what you are saying?

The use of God’s name in OMG is nothing more than a vain space filler without the absence of human thought. 99.9% of the time when I hear God’s name in OMG and the phrase, “Oh my God.” it is not calling out to Him for help or a plea to the maker, but a space filler.

Let’s be honest, it is time to stop filling space with God’s name and start filling hearts with Him.

The Bible has been clear for centuries on the use of God’s name:

“You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.” (Exodus 20:7; ESV)

‘You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.” (Deuteronomy 5:11; ESV)

So, today, consider how you are using God’s name? Are you using it as a space filler or it is really a cry out to the Creator for His help in our time of need?

Just some thoughts,
