Discussion #1: The Misuse of God’s Name (by Words)

God’s name is misused for profanity, frivolity and hypocrisy

Share how you have heard / seen / even personally misused God’s name before.

Some TV programmes/ movies/ songs mock God’s name. Have you seen /heard any?
How do you feel when you see / hear them?

Discussion #2: The Misuse of God’ Name (by Works)

Share how you were a bad testimony before.
How did you rescue the situation?

Share bad Christian testimonies you have witnessed before. What did u learn?

Discussion #3: The Magnification of God’s Name.

You can magnify His name in your Prayer, Praise, Preaching, Purity (in marriage) and Piety (walk of faith)

Take each aspect, and discuss how God’s Name is priority in your life. For example: what do you really pray for? What is your attitude in worship services? Have you led someone to the Lord? How’s your marriage different from your worldly friends’?
