“In the multitude of people is the king’s honour: but in the want of people is the destruction of the prince.” – Proverbs 14:28
God is the King of kings. I Timothy 6:15; Revelation 17:14; Revelation 19:16. God is honored when multitudes gather to worship Him (especially in Church). God is exalted, praised and esteemed when multitude gather to worship Him. It is important for us to remember that God created everyone on the earth (including the atheists) and He does not want anyone to perish.
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” – II Peter 3:9
God wants to see the unchurched and unsaved brought into the kingdom and established in His house. Therefore, the commandment of God “…Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Is both urgent and critical. It is more crucial when believers have the spiritual understanding that even Angels were not given the assignment of preaching the gospel. Angels can only direct targets to “men” who have been ordained to preach the gospel to the targets as it happened in the case of Cornelius. Acts 10:3-6.
God has solely committed the preaching assignment to believers. Carrying out the assignment comes with corresponding honors from God. The Bible says:
“Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.” – I Samuel 2:30
Honor from God is the highest lifting that man can ever experience on the earth. The implication of honor from God is that it comes with multiplier effects of honor from all things (animate and inanimate), visible and invisible things created by God. No wonder that the scripture describes soul winners as wise people.
The question is; have you honored God today? The last soul you won for God is the last honor you gave to Him. Reach out! Time is running out! Step out to honor God; step out to win souls into His Kingdom!
You shall be highly honored!
