People say "Oh, My G---" a lot. The letters are on billboards. It is expressed by people usually in times of trouble or surprise.

Many times people are probably just using it without thinking of why they are saying it. I have also heard Christians utter these words, even though the Third Commandment forbids taking God's name in vain (Exodus 20:7), and it includes some kind of unspecified punishment for those who do. If non-Christians use it, I wonder what kind of "god" they are referring to, if any god at all.

When people in general say it, is it just an expression or are they acknowledging God as part of their life without realizing it? Are they calling out to God to help them in times of distress? People might consider giving some thought as to why they use this expression.

There is an account given in John 20:26-28 where Thomas, the disciple of Jesus, upon seeing him after his resurrection and the nail prints in his hands, responded by saying, "My Lord and my God." This was a time of true recognition as to who Jesus really was.

Is it just an expression, or are you truly searching for God in your life? I encourage you to make Jesus your God, and get rid of other "gods."









If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
