Quotes to Consider:
Herman Hoeksema on "Hallowed Be Thy Name": "Do
we really desire that He so instructs us by His Word and Spirit in the
knowledge of His name that the zeal for its glory may consume us, and
that His glory becomes our highest and only purpose in life? Do we
really venture to ask Him for grace that we may always and everywhere
confess and praise Him with our lips, that we may always and
constantly maintain this confession in our walk and life, and walk as
children of light? Do we deeply and clearly realize that if God should
hear this prayer, we may have to suffer reproach for His name’s sake
in the world, that it may cost us our job, our position, our very
life? If we are really children of God, we will answer: ‘Yes, I am
ready to pray this petition, but with fear and trembling. Lord, I
believe. Help Thou mine unbelief’" (Triple
Knowledge, p. 513).
Thomas Manton: "There is nothing more precious
than God himself, therefore nothing should be more dear to us than his
glory. This is the great difference between the upright and the
hypocrite: the hypocrite never seeks God but when his necessities do
require it, not in and for himself; but when the upright come to seek
God, it is for God in the first place—their main care is about God’s
concernments rather than their own" (Works, vol. 1, p. 67).
