Revelation 4:9-11 And whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to him who is seated on the throne, who lives forever and ever, 10 the twenty-four elders fall down before him who is seated on the throne and worship him who lives forever and ever. They cast their crowns before the throne, saying, 11 "Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created."
We learn two things as we read this message from Jesus. We are to give glory, honor and thanksgiving to God Who rules over all forever and ever. How do we give God glory? We give God glory by giving Him the credit He deserves for every good thing He does through us and that He does in the world. How do we give God honor? We proclaim to Him and everyone that He is of the highest value. How do we give thanksgiving to God? We acknowledge all He has done for us and others with much gratitude.
The second thing we learn from this divine revelation of the throne room is that we give the Lord all authority, reward and profit He has given to us (“cast our crowns before the throne”) and acknowledge all glory, honor and power belongs to Him because He created all things.
Are you giving all glory, honor, power and thanks to God? Begin today and never stop. Practice the environment of heaven in this sinful world and let people bask in a little bit of heaven on earth.
