Scripture: Ephesians 5:25-33
When we put this all together in Ephesians 5:25-33 what we discover is that the love of God is the soil for the development of true Biblical honor. This honor includes deep reverence and respect. This deep-seated honor and respect also has a powerful component of the fear of the Lord. If we are developing a culture of honor in the church, that culture of honor can only come as we sow, cultivate and nurture these Sonship Gifts into our personal lives and practice them in our believing communities. As we fully build and establish them, we realize what our assignment is. Our assignment is first for God, then for each other. The fear of the Lord is a Holy Spirit-activation that we choose to seek. As we honor God, He honors us with His Holy fear first in us and then through us, which at times has wonder-working results!
