The Israelites were in the midst of a pagan nation, worshipping false gods. They weren’t living the life that God had planned for them.

God removed the children of Israel from the wickedness. He removed them from the sin they were in. He did this “for mine holy name’s sake”.

Do you take into consideration that if you are referring to yourself as a Christian you are representing the name of Jesus? In doing so your decisions don’t just reflect you but the Almighty God.

Next time you find yourself in a situation where you are tempted to sin or are in sin itself, remember who you are representing. Remember the name you carry.

Represent Jesus well.

Ezekiel 36:21-23
