UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE: People wonder to whom they should give ultimate allegiance. Who deserves to be worshipped and praised? The book of Revelation teaches that God alone is worthy of all praise, wonder, and awe.
CONCLUDING REFLECTION: Genuine believers in God and dedicated disciples of Jesus Christ understand the importance of offering to God unqualified worship in Spirit and in truth. This worship of God does not just take place once or twice per week in the four walls of a sanctuary, but our very bodies serve as living, portable sanctuaries and temples of righteousness dedicated to the glory of our great God. This worship cannot stop with lip service, but must be reinforced with obedient actions that reflect the commandments of God and the character of God.
PRAYER: LORD, please prepare us to be a sanctuary. Help us to live lives that are pure and holy, tried and true. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
