How to Honor God

Proverbs 3:9, 10

October 8th, 2018 • By Pastor Ssemogerere David - Stewardship Department - Uganda Union Mission


In the above text four points shine out clearly:

1. Every Christian has a duty of honoring God.

2. There is a method of honoring God "with our wealth."

3. How He would have us render our wealth "With our first fruits." God first, then our own interest.

4. There is a sure result. Well-filled barns, and overflowing storehouses.

(I). Why should we honor God?

1. Because He is the Creator and Preserver of the race.

2. Because He opens His hands, and satisfies the desires of every living thing.

3. Because He holds our lives in His hands and protects us day by day.

4. Because He provided atonement for the sins of the world, in His Son, Jesus Christ, through whom gospel, life and immortality are brought to light.

5. Because we as worshipers are made better by worshipping a God whose characteristics are ideal and eternal.

6. Because He holds out to the race for the great future.

(II). What is meant by honoring God with our wealth?

This question is not difficult.

1. A farmer's wealth is what he gets in the way of crops from the ground.

2. The miner's wealth is what he digs from the earth.

3. The laborer's wealth is what he receives as wages each week, month or year.

What is meant by honoring God with the first fruits?

1. It means giving God his share before we take our own. The usual method among Adventists

One genre is sadly lacking in... Read more

Sins of the Father: Food for Thought

April 14, 2013 • By Andrey Symbiota

“You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate [disobey] me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.” Deuteronomy 5:9-10 When I first began studying the bible, I found this verse to be very...

"A Spritiual Invitation"

March 6, 2013 • By Darius Thibodeaux

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ, along with the death of Jesus on the cross, is the cornerstone of our faith. As Paul says in 1 Corinthians 15:14, “And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty.” He adds in v. 17, “And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins!’To Paul and the early Christians, the resurrection of Jesus Christ...
