TOPIC: THE ONE GOD ESTEEMS TEXT: ISAIAH 66 : 1 - 5 In the world today, many people desire positions of honour while some even pay their ways through to gain personal esteem. These come through awards, recognitions, etc. To esteem is to give proper respect and honour to someone. But, in accordance with today's passage, God esteems people who do not pay their way through. Rather, He esteems the one who shows kindness to others. The text further states that God esteems those who tremble at His word and are not arrogant but have a contrite spirit. Today, many people think that God's word is like any other word and so approach it without faith.
QUESTION Are you rude and, or, arrogant because of your position? PRAYER Lord Almighty, I desire and love to be esteemed by God Help me to humble myself before You, do not allow me to trample on Your word, in Christ's name, Amen.
