The Root of All Dishonor

The reason our culture is dishonoring is because people aren’t honoring God.

We are treating God as common or ordinary.

God is not the “big guy in the sky” or the “man upstairs.” He is the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe.

Jesus is not our “homeboy.” He is the risen and soon-returning King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

In Isaiah 29:13, The Lord says: “These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.”

It’s time we stop giving God lip service and give him the honor He is due.

    Dissipating honor is a vicious cylcle. Humanity has taken honor from God and placed it upon ourselves. As a result we place a high value upon the individual. As a result, within our relationships, instead of humility we act with equality. Then when we enter a “personal relationship” with God we are in the mind set of equality instead of humilty, robbing God of the very honor that is His. I very well could be wrong, but I don’t see how honor can survive when we insist on a level playing field

    Jesus was equal with God the father. Yet He humbled himself (Phil. 3). We can be humble even if we are on a “level playing field” with other individuals. We can be humble toward someone even if we are “superior” to them. To humble yourself is humility; to be humbled by someone else or by circumstances is humiliation.

    That is very true..that many people’s hearts are not in line with what comes off their lips…
