sermon: Honor Before Love
Following Things Step-by-Step
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 25-Jun-94; Sermon #135; 76 minutes
In this sermon on spiritual cause and effect, John Ritenbaugh, using the old cliché, "You can't put the cart before the horse," reveals that there is a definite cause and effect, "reap what you sow" principle introduced in Genesis 2:16 and radiating throughout the entire contents of the Bible. There is an order into which elements of attitude and conduct will follow. This principle can be seen in the consequences of delayed justice and increased crime, pride preceding a fall, humility preceding honor, and honor preceding love (in both human and God-plane contexts). Agape love will not occur unless we first learn to honor, esteem, and cherish God and the preciousness of Christ's sacrifice for us.
