How To Honor God

As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus. Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him. Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away. (Matthew 27:57-60)

Honoring God should be one of our main goals as His followers and His children. You might be wondering, “How am I supposed to honor God?” These are a few ways to do that:  

1). We honor God by giving sacrificially.
First of all, we honor God by giving sacrificially. There is no doubt about it, the tomb that Joseph gave sacrificially had been customized for him and his family. It was a gift that said, “Jesus, You are to be honored above all things.” It was his possession, but Joseph chose to give it. I want to encourage you to honor God with everything He gives you, both your money and your talents. You are to use all that God has given you to honor Him.  

2). We honor God by serving graciously.
We also honor God by serving graciously. It is very important that we serve graciously. For many of us, we have become disconnected from the people we love.  

We need to move back into relationships with others because you cannot serve graciously if you are disconnected. You honor God by choosing to move into connection, by being a blessing to other people, and by being the Lord's hands and feet. I pray that you would embrace that.  

3). We honor God by seeking Him.
Finally, we honor God by seeking Him. Nothing is more important in our lives than when we begin to seek the Lord. Many of us have lost the discipline of learning how to seek Him. We have lost the accountability that others have provided. We have stopped personal Bible study, and we have lived a life full of fear. I believe these last two years have taught us that this entire globe can be controlled by one thing, and that is fear. This is why we need to come back to the disciplines of seeking God in prayer and seeking God through His Word.

I pray that you will implement these three actions into your daily life so that you may honor God with everything you have. May the Lord bless you as you honor and obey Him each day.

Help us Lord to live intentional lives and not be swayed by the commands of this world. Help us to put others first and to meditate on Your Word day and night so we might be led by Your Spirit to do all that You have called us to do in Jesus name. Amen.
