DO YOU WEAR GOD'S NAME? Guest Alexis Goring

Wearing God’s Name

by Alexis A. Goring

“They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.”

~Revelation 22:4 (NIV)

This devotional was inspired by God, a beautiful song called “Wear Your Name” and K-LOVE.

K-LOVE is my favorite Christian radio station. It’s based in California and is available online so that music lovers around the world can tune in and hear Christian Contemporary songs.

I love this radio station so much that I decided I wanted everyone around me to know about it. Therefore, I ordered one of their window stickers and plastered it to my car with hope that their wonderful ministry would impact everyone who saw their name on my car. My desire is that when people see my window sticker, they will connect with K-LOVE online and as they use K-LOVE’s endless resources then they too would be changed for the better.

Lately, God inspired me with a lesson point based on my desire to wear K-LOVE’s name on my car and that lesson is this: Just like how my deep appreciation for K-LOVE inspired me to advertise their name so others would be impacted, so it is with Christians. We should want the world to know about Jesus Christ so much so that we wear His Name and we wear it well. You do not need to plaster or tattoo Jesus Christ's name to your forehead but the world should know that you know and love Him by the way you live your life and by the words you say. They should see Jesus in the way that you treat people especially those who offend you.

So how do we wear God’s Name and “wear it well”? The Bible answers this question in Micah 6:8 (NIV) which says, “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” When you live for Jesus and live out His command in Micah 6:8, you are indeed wearing God’s Name and wearing it well!

If you’d like a musical illustration of how to wear God’s name well, listen to this song “Wear Your Name” by Gylchris Sprauve.  Watch

In this song, he sings about the urgency and necessity to represent Jesus Christ in these troubled, modern-day times. This song is a call to “renounce the world and all its thrills” and have God’s Name placed on you because you are one of His.

Sprauve emphasizes the importance of standing for what is right, denying the desires of your flesh, and allowing God’s Holy Spirit to direct you into being a good reflection of God’s Love to the world. It’s a beautiful song with a relevant message.

In closing, I’d like to remind you that Earth is not our home. So let’s live with a Heavenly focus—one where we live for Jesus Christ and share His Light with a world that so desperately needs to see Him.
