Awhile back I (Randy) was thinking about my life as a Christ-follower and I thought about the importance of the following three words: know, honor, and obey.
Know God. Honor God. Obey God. It doesn’t get much more basic than that!
Three important words for Christ-followers are know, honor, and obey! Shortly after beginning to think about these three words, I read through Isaiah and came across the following words in Isaiah 11.1-3 (CEV) …
Like a branch that sprouts from a stump, someone from David’s family will someday be king. The Spirit of the LORD will be with him to give him understanding, wisdom, and insight. He will be powerful, and he will know and honor the LORD. His greatest joy will be to obey the LORD.
Later I was reading John 17.3-4 (CEV) where Jesus says …
Eternal life is to know you, the only true God, and to know Jesus Christ, the one you sent. I have brought glory to you here on earth by doing everything you gave me to do.
Know God. Honor God. Obey God.
