Revelation 4:11

EARLY CHRISTMAS PRESENTS

 

The day after Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season for Christmas. If you value your sanity, the best thing to do the Friday after Thanksgiving is to stay out of the department stores!

 

Christmas is coming, and most of us have a sizable Christmas shopping list. I wonder how many have on their list the one who's birthday we celebrate? He's the only one I know who celebrates a birthday and watches others get more presents than He does.

 

Revelation 4 is an heavenly scene showing the worship around the throne of God. The four and twenty elders are worshipping God, and cast crowns at His feet. As they cast these thrones they say, "Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour, and power..."

Here are three things that every Christian can give the Triune God as an early Christmas present.

 

GLORY

Glory is praise. We can and should continually give God praise and Thanksgiving. Hebrews 13:15, Philippians 4:4, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Psalm 29:2, Psalm 100

 

HONOR

We honor God by:

1. Trusting Christ As Savior. Ephesians 2:8-9

2. Doing good works Ephesians 2:10

3. Using fitting speech. Ephesians 4:29

4. Avoiding the wrong places. Psalm 1:1

5. Doing all things for His glory. Colossians 3:23

6. Thinking the right thoughts. Philippians 4:8

7. Being Obedient. John 14:15

 

POWER

Allow God's power to work in you. Ephesians 5:18-21, Galatians 5:22-23

Allow God's power to work through you. Philippians4:13
