Our Trophies Laid Down 5.9.22
“the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:
11“You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they were created
and have their being.” (Revelation 4:10-11)
We spend most of our lives looking to achieve and gain significance. Sometimes we are given awards and accolades. In the end, all those trophies, all the awards, all the things we were so proud of in the world, we will lay at the feet of Jesus.
He alone is worthy of praise. All we do in this world should be seen as an offering to Him. Every honor received is because of Him. He has given us all gifts for us to invest as we live our lives. The results of our investments will be our gift to Him.
Keep your focus today. Serve the Lord with gladness.
