• “Jesus answered … I honor My Father” (John 8:49).
The Lord Jesus honored His Father here in this world, and never more than in the work of redemption.
• “We see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor” (Hebrews 2:9).
As a result of the Lord Jesus honoring the Father here in the world, His Father has given Him the highest place of honor in heaven.
• “Honor the Son” (John 5:23).
It is our privilege today to honor God’s beloved Son, who accomplished the work of Calvary to His glory. When we do this, in worship, praise, and thanksgiving, it brings delight to the Father’s heart.
“And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto Him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever” (Revelation 5:13).
Soon He will have universal honor and praise, and, in the meantime, we can give Him that honor He is so worthy of.
