His Name Is Holy

The idea of holiness is so central to biblical teaching that it is said of God, “Holy is his name” (Luke 1:49).  His name is holy because He is holy.  He is not always treated with holy reverence.  His name is tramped through the dirt of this world.  It functions as a curse word, a platform for the obscene.  That the world has little respect for God is vividly seen by the way the world regards His name.  No reverence. No awe before him.
