Deuteronomy 5:11
King James Version (KJV)
11 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain: for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Matthew 22:37-40
King James Version (KJV)
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Luke 6:45
King James Version (KJV)
45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

What it means to take the Lord’s name in vain is to not show the proper reverence, respect, adoration, towards God.
What you say comes out from your heart. If someone loves Jesus with all their heart, soul, and mind, then they should not speak badly about Jesus. (or take His Wonderful Name lightly, or use it as a kind of cursing or swearing, you get the idea)

With that said, we all do still make mistakes. We all still sin. If you catch yourself sinning you should ask God to forgive you.

1 John 1:9
King James Version (KJV)
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Hope that helps. God bless you brother!
