Moses then said to Aaron, “This is what the Lord spoke of when he said: Among those who approach me I will be proved holy; in the sight of all the people I will be honored.” Aaron remained silent. Leviticus 10:3
When a person meets with certain high-level people, there are often certain protocols to be followed. There are things that are required to be done and other things that are not be done in order to have the meeting.
All of this is done in order to honor the high-level person being met. If one chooses not to do these things, then the meeting will not occur.
Aaron had two sons that offered unauthorized fire before God and God killed them. Moses said told Aaron that God said that when someone approaches Him, He will be proved holy and honored before all people.
While most people are willing to honor famous people, many of those same people do not show God the same level of honor. Some will act as though God is just their good old buddy and they can do anything they want.
On Sundays when they go to church, many will wear just whatever they want to be comfortable, instead of their best to honor God. During prayers, they talk to God as just the ‘man upstairs’, instead of as God–the creator of the universe and Almighty King.
As a believer grows in God, he should increase in his honor to and for God. It is acceptable for a new believer to act without great honor, but the honor and respect for God should grow on a regular basis.
Honor for God should be seen in the believer both inside and outside the church. The world needs to see that honor and it shows a heart that loves God.
Only you and God can see your heart and life and truly know how you are honoring God. Live your life in such a way that the world will see that you honor God with everything in you.
He is the Creator of everything and has forgiven you of sins and given you eternal life. He is to be the Almighty King of your life. He is worthy of all honor.
Do not let the way you dress, act or speak bring any dishonor to God in any way. How do you honor God today with your life?
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will honor God with all that you say and do; that people will see that you honor God with your life; and that God will be pleased with your life.
