WHO RECEIVES YOUR WORSHIP?

Author : Bishop Julius Okarike

Verse Of The Day : Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. Romans 1:25

Thought of The Day : It’s an act of foolishness and wickedness to give the glory of God to His creation.

LISTEN : Who receives your worship? God or man? Does your worship go to the Creator or his creation? God doesn’t want to share his glory with anyone. Worship is his exclusive right, and must be reserved for him alone. He said,

I am the LORD! That is my name!
I will not share my glory with
anyone else, or the praise
due me with idols.

Isaiah 42:8

No doubt, God created man with special glory, as man is made in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). However, no matter the glory of man, God’s glory is supreme, hence, all should worship God and him alone. Beloved, worship belongs to God. This is why the Bible says this about God,

“You are holy; you sit as king
receiving the praises of Israel.”

Psalms 22:3

God is the King of all, and should receive our praise. He created everything and everyone. Therefore, He should be worshipped and revered by everyone. If God cannot receive our worship he cannot preserve our life. The earth and every one of us owe our existence to him. The Bible says,

“The earth is the LORD’s,
and the fullness thereof; the world,
and they that dwell therein.”

Psalms 24:1

No one is excusable for refusing to worship the only true and living God. It’s an act of foolishness and wickedness to give the glory of God to his creation. Beloved, whatever the object of worship, if it’s not God it’s idol worship. Whatever takes the place of God in your life is an idol and sacrilegious. So, give your worship to God. Be wise!

What Should We Do With This Message?
1. Worship God and stop worshipping His creatures.
2. Don’t give honour that is due God to man no matter what.
3. Be real with your service to God and don’t pretend to serve Him.
4. No matter the circumstance, don’t put your confidence in man, rather, put your confidence in God.

Prayer : Everlasting Father, I thank you because you’re the only true God. Help me to worship you and you alone, amen.

A Word Of Blessing : Today, I speak on your life, may God guide you to make the right decision and serve Him for the salvation of your soul, in Jesus’ name, amen!

Reflection : The wicked refuses to know and accept the fact that God owns everything and everyone.

Quote : “Worship belongs to God. Hence, whatever the object of worship, if it’s not God it’s idol worship.”
