Honouring God

When I saw this picture on Instagram yesterday, I literally giggled. It is so interesting how the blessings of God are emphasized (underlined and highlighted) whereas the part about ‘honouring’ God does not seem important enough to be highlighted.

Why do we want to claim God’s promises without living for God? It is like having a friend or family member who always wants to collect from you but never ever wants to give or be there for you at all. God is not to be used! God is to be worshipped, reverenced and honoured.

And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him – Colossians 3:17

The best way to live for God is to make him a priority in our lives. Basically, EVERYTHING we do should honour God. How we live on a daily basis (Our lifestyle) should honour God. Honouring God in everything includes: Our dressing, finances, hobbies, occupations, businesses, bodies, music, speech etc.

For you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body – 1 Corinthians 6:20

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God – 1 Corinthians 10:31

As Christians we need to realise that honouring God is not limited to our words or good intentions. Talk is cheap, completely honouring God with our lives is not easy but it is very well worth it.
