Honoring God

 via
Tonight at my Bible study at church we talked about how we, as Christians, are called to honor God with our lives. One of the questions that my Bible study leader addressed, was "what does it mean to honor God?" The answers we came up with were respecting God, and giving him the recognition he deserves. Those two things alone are hard. It's difficult to give someone the respect they deserve and even more so to give God the recognition he is required.

As Christians, everything we do shows honor to God. One of the specific things that we talked about that shows God honor, is our mouths. It's hard to live a life of honor to God when Christians around the world constantly say unkind words or unkind things. It's ruins a Christians witness to have an unclean mouth and hurts God. Whenever I hear people that I know are Christians saying unwholesome words or unkind things, it really hurts me as a Christian. I know no one is perfect, but God calls Christians to be set apart from others and I that especially means in the way we talk.

One way that my group leader said Christians could hold each other accountable and stay pure is fellowship with other believers. Romans 12:5 says, "So in Christ, we who are many form one body, and each member belong to all the others." This verse is the perfect example of how Christians are supposed to spend time with other believers. Another verse we read, was 1 Thessalonians 5:11 and it says, "So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing." Through fellowship with other believers we are worshiping God in what we, as Christians do, and that's what I want to do. I want to honor God with all I am.

  1. What a great post! I love this topic and when it comes up in my college bible class. It is always so much easier to hangout with people with the same faith but that's not always an option so we have to learn how to handle ourselves when that occurs.
    Thank you for sharing this!
