A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is Mine honour? and if I be a master, where is My fear? saith the LORD of Hosts unto you, O priests, that despise My Name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised Thy Name?
And now, I pray you, beseech God that He will be gracious unto us: this hath been by your means: will He regard your persons? saith the LORD of Hosts.
For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same My Name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto My Name, and a pure offering: for My Name shall be great among the heathen, saith the LORD of Hosts. (Mal 1:6,9,11)
GOD is spirit and is to be worshiped in spirit and in truth and while those outside the Kingdom can worship Him as Creator, only those that are born again and have the Spirit of GOD within them can truly worship Him as Saviour and Redeemer. Many that are not of GOD have acknowledge Him as Provider and Sustainer, some have even recognized that He alone is GOD, but only those who have repented of their sIn, and received the new life that He gives to all who truly believe in His finished work on the cross will be saved and truly worship GOD as Father and fear Him.
You can fear GOD for what He will do at the Judgment, or you can reverence Him for what He has done and will do for you. If you believe in Him, and trust Him for your salvation, repenting of your sIns He will save you and give you a brand new life. A life that is eternal, now and forever. A life that is abundant and free, a whole new life of fellowship and relationship with Jesus Christ and others who know Him.
I pray that that is your desire today, and if you have already received that free gift, tell others that they might know Him.
