Re:Verse passage – 1 Chronicles 28:1-10 (day four)
From the beginning of time, the name of the Lord had been holy. Following man’s expulsion from the Garden of Eden and the birth of Seth, men began to call on the name of the Lord. (Genesis 4:26) Following the flood and when God made His covenant with Abraham, men called upon the name of the Lord. All through Scripture, the name of the Lord was revered and holy. Now when David seeks to build the temple, God preserves His holy name. His name will not be associated with the shedding of man’s blood.
Does God’s name cause you to reverence Him? Do you prepare your heart to come into His presence? We are not to casually or lightly approach His throne. Care must be taken not to presume upon His grace and promises. We are not to demand His response. The love of God compels us to reverence His name…our God is a Holy God!
