God the Father and Jesus the Son are the same. Dishonor one and you dishonor the other. Jesus said this to religious people and challenged them to believe Him.
We love to speak of God. Do we love to say the name of Jesus the same way?
Does Jesus have the same place of honor in our lives as God does?
Here are the key ideas:
- God decided that his son Jesus would have a place of honor.
- God’s goal is for us to recognize the place of honor that Jesus has in the world.
- God is God and can do whatever he wants to do. This is one of them.
Anyone who dishonors the Son, dishonors the Father, for it was the Father’s decision to put the Son in the place of honor.” ~Jesus
