HONOUR- The Bible says to give honor to honor is due. In Psalms 15:4, in describing the godly man, it says: "In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD." Oh how we ought to look for people to whom honor is due! We should be looking to applaud them for their works sake. The Bible says: 1 Thessalonians 5:13 "And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. And be at peace among yourselves." This is talking about pastors, but so many godly men and women should be esteemed for the work they do for the cause of Jesus Christ. I hope to take this thought to heart in my own life and look for those to whom honor is due, and give it them!
CHURCH- Psalms 26:8 says: "LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth." Here we see that David is talking about the tabernacle… the house of God. We have the church, and we too ought to love the church just like David loved the tabernacle. Do you go to church, or do you love church? Some people say, we are the church, but the reality is that we are not the church by ourselves, we are only the church as we gather together with other believers for the sake of having Church. We need to build our lives around our family and around our church!
COURAGE- "Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart," Have courage and God will strengthen your heart. He will put strength in you…. Don't despair…. God will come through!!
Hope you have a blessed day! Pastor Mike Mutchler
