Message: THE GREATEST HONOUR IS THAT BESTOWED BY GOD. Many of us seek honour: by associating with very important persons; by seeking titles and great positions; by winning medals and awards but all these honours fade. No one goes to the grave with a PhD or chieftaincy title. All the runners in the stadium go into strict training to win a crown that fades (1 Cor. 9:25). As Christians, we should seek the crown and honour that will never decay. The Apostles tell us that the greatest honour is to suffer for Christ. They were flogged for preaching Christ yet they rejoiced to have been honoured to suffer for Christ. Count it all joy when you have to suffer on account of Christ. It is an HONOUR. At the end, these words will be addressed to you: WELL DONE GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT, AND YOU WILL BE GIVEN THE CROWN OF UNFADING GLORY IN HEAVEN.
