Honoring God

Driving down Abercorn Street in Savannah yesterday, I passed a little sports car that had “Honor God” stickered to the top of the front windshield.  Now, I didn’t know this guy nor did I the role that Jesus Christ played in his life but it got me thinking, “Can we truly honor God without accepting the Truth about His Son, Jesus Christ?” 

There are a lot of people and religions that talk about “God” but not many that will talk about Jesus.  It’s “God this” and “God that”.  They talk about following God, obeying God, listening to God and how God has changed their lives.  They throw His name around like it’s just another “name dropping” exercise at a shallow “who’s who” social gathering.  And then there are those people that don’t even believe He exists, and religions that speak of Jesus as just another guy that came to promote world peace.

And here in lies the underlying reason why people are dying every second, and being sentenced to eternal damnation.  We are willing to talk about God and all the blessings He has given to us but we’re not willing to tell people about the Gift of Salvation that comes only through Jesus Christ.  They talk and talk and talk about God but in the end the outcome is still the same. 

So let’s honor God by honoring His Son, Jesus Christ as the true Lord and Savior of our lives.

  1. Good point! i’m quilty of not using the name of Jesus enough! But nowadays alot of nig time preachers have gotten away from talking about sin and and Jesus, and instead there talking about success and repositioning yourself because it sells more books. Wheres did Jesus Go?

    You make a great point with some of the “big time” preachers not talking about the true message of Christ. After I saw the car, I was watching one of those preachers on TV that night and he didn’t mention Jesus once. I’ve seen him several other times and he may have mentioned Jesus once or twice, if that many. But he sure talked about himself and his books.

    This is one reason American Christianity is so ineffective now. We have people that are supposedly “called” by God to preach the Gospel of Christ but they conveniently overlook the sacrifice He made for us and the dying of millions of lost souls on a daily basis.
