The term “hallowed” refers to “one that is set apart from all others”. Jesus is stating that the “name” of our Heavenly Father is so pure, and special, it is set apart from all others.
The name “Heavenly” reveals to us that He finds His origin in heaven. He is not of this earthly, sinful world. His existence is that of eternal perfection far above all mankind.
The name “Father” teaches us that He is the Beginning (Creator) of all. Also, it helps us to understand that God possesses a love for all which is demonstrated by His care of all creation. This is in addition to His greater redeeming love He holds towards those he has chosen to save.
Today, let’s praise our Lord for being who He is … our perfect loving Creator who reigns from the heavens!
May the Lord bless each one of us as we “Think On These Things”.
