Daily Reading – Ezra 2-3 / Acts 10:23-48
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
Acts 10:25-26 And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped him. But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
Today many Evangelists and Preachers have made a name for themselves. We see them on TV, hear them on the radio, and find their books and CD’s on the Internet. Most of them haven’t really sought after fame. They’ve simply preached the word and man has elevated them to this place of recognition. However, they, and we need to remember who is to be worshiped.
Peter had also become famous for what God had done through him. Yet when Cornelius bowed to him, He said, “I myself also am a man.” There’s nothing wrong with showing respect to the man of God who delivers the word of God. Nevertheless, we must be careful to never worship man and only worship God.
WHAT DO YOU SAY:
Are you worshiping God only or a man also?
