Hallowing God's name–prayer and conduct of life

The Second Commandment admonishes us to keep holy everything that has to do with God and His name. This also applies to our conduct of life. As a Christian, the believer bears a special responsibility toward the divine name. If those called by His name were to conduct their lives dishonourably, they would thereby dishonour the name of God.

On account of their relationship to their heavenly Father, God's children bear a high degree of responsibility for keeping the name of God holy, as they bear the name of the Father and the Son (Revelation 14: 1).
