… in what you do!
Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible,
to God who alone is wise,
be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
1 Tim 1 17
What is it that God expects of us?
… that we honor Him!
But how do we honor God?
… by doing what Jesus did!
Jesus answered, “If I honor Myself, My honor is nothing.
It is My Father who honors Me,
of whom you say that He is your God.
John 8 54
What did Jesus do?
How did Jesus honor God?
Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself,
but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does,
the Son also does in like manner.
John 5 19
Jesus did the works of the Father!
In other words,
… Jesus did what the Father did!
So how do we honor God?
Not by the result of our works, like Cain did.
But like Abel, bringing to God the best he had,
… a lamb in thanksgiving for God’s goodness and love!
By this My Father is glorified,
that you bear much fruit;
so you will be My disciples.
John 15 8
