WHY DOES GOD DESERVE TO BE HONOUR
Memory verse- Malachi 1:14
"....for i am a great King, saith the Lord of hosts, and my name is dreadful among the heathen."
Lesson Aim -To let the he children know how great God is Central Truth The God we serve is a very great God.

Introduction
God is the creator of the universe, He controls all things, He was there at the beginning and He will still be alive at the end of all things. Our God is a Spirit that is why we cannot see Him with our eyes, for the fact that we could not see Him with our eyes should not mean we should not give unto Him, the honour that is due to Him.
The children of Israel offered polluted offering to God such as lame, torn and polluted animals but God was not pleased with their offerings. The same children of Israel offered the best offerings to their earthly Father, Governor and Master probably because they could see them with their physical eyes. We can't see God, but we can see the works of His hands every where and every day. The book of Psalm 19 verse 1 to 2 says “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handy work. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night
unto night sheweth knowledge." In this study, we shall consider some of the things that makes our God honourable

What does it mean to honour God?
To honour God is to glorify Him for who He really is. We honour God when we demonstrate through word or action His glorious character or deeds.
Revelation 4:10-11 describes a scene in heaven: "The twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and . . . lay their crowns before the throne and say: ‘You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honour and power.
How best can you honour God?

  • By accepting Jesus as your Lord and savior.
