f God is the Creator of the entire universe, then it must follow that He is the Lord of the whole universe. No part of the world is outside of His lordship. That means that no part of my life must be outside of His lordship. R C Sproul
Learn to Honour the Lord
Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.
2 Timothy 2:21
The world likes to honour things such as fame, wealth, political influence, worldly power and the list goes on. There are many people who thrive on this and are not mindful that God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.
This is because the world that we live in is corrupt and does not give honour to God, the Creator. When we, as believers, continue to honour the world, we become an enemy of God because we are not serving Him, but the world.
You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.James 4:4
The word also says that we must honour our parents, the government, the elders who speak God’s truth to us, as well as those with whom we live. If we do not honour God, how then can we honour any one else?
In the book of Revelation, we read about the twenty-four elders who cast their crowns before the throne and fell down to worship God because they wanted to honour the King of kings and the Lord of lords.
Let us choose to honour God this morning, acknowledging Him as the Creator of the universe, worthy of all honour and praise. Let us cast down our crowns of worldly ambitions and desires, and give Him the glory for all that He has done in our lives.
Thank You for Your saving grace that makes me white as snow, so that I can stand before Your holy presence and give You the glory and honour that is Your due as Creator, Saviour, Lord and King. Amen.
God bless you,
