“Cursed is he that puts his trust in man and makes humans his savior” (Jeremiah 17:5). With the coming of the pope and the selection of people running for president, that is all one hears these days7#8212;men praising and celebrating other men. It is getting to be pretty pathetic because the praise which should be offered to God is now bestowed upon humans (Acts 10:25-26).
Jesus Christ is the Son of God and savior of the world (John 1:29-36). When the people waved the palm branches to celebrate Jesus arrival into Jerusalem, they did the right thing because He is worthy (John 12:12-16). But to do the same for men who don’t have a heaven to give us or a hell in which to punish us, we must ask; what in the world are we doing?
Let us respect all men who are worthy; but let us not worship them (Revelation 22:9; 1 Peter 2:17).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
