Today's Daily Devotional

“Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!” Revelation 7:12

04/21/09 It was interesting to study this verse today. I learned that the Greek word used for thanks is “eucaristia”. It means thankfulness. And the Greek resembles the Catholic term for the communion bread, which is called the eucharist. I think it’s sweet that the Greek word for thanks should be used for the remembrance of Christ’s body when we celebrate communion. The Greek word for honor is “time”, which is the value one has by reason of rank and state of office which he holds, deference, reverence. There is no higher rank than the King of the Universe! He deserves the highest praise! How much value do you place on the Lord? Would others know that based on how you act? What could you do to be sure that others are aware of how highly you value God?
