Respect

This past Sunday, Pastor Eric taught from Mark 12 about the beloved son.

In the parable, the tenants showed disrespect to the landowner by rejecting his servants, one after another, even to the point of killing his beloved son. Pastor Eric helped us understand how this related to the Israelites rejecting the prophets and eventually, Jesus Himself.

But this isn’t just a message to scoff at the Israelites’ response. We, by God’s grace, are children of the promise.

How, then, can we show respect for God’s beloved Son?

In his message, Pastor Eric referenced a short article by John Piper, How to Drink Orange Juice to the Glory of God. This quick read shows us how even our most mundane, routine actions can serve to glorify Him if we do so in faith, with gratitude and humility.

So let’s get practical, brothers and sisters…what part of your day glorifies God?

This isn’t a question to condemn, but to spark an awareness of the Giver of good things. It’s meant to provoke us to use our lives, even the every-day parts, to build His kingdom.

 

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31
