Honoring the Dead?

My text will come from John 5:23. That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.

I’ve heard people say that they want to honor their loved ones after they die by performing some act or event or fulfill some promise that was made. So many times we kid ourselves into thinking that our loved ones want the same things out in eternity as they did here. Not so! Read the story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke chapter 16. In eternity people have a change of tune, mind, heart, attitude, and love.

Friend, if you want to honor the dead do what’s right, not what you want, because that may not be right.

Honor and glorify the Lord Jesus Christ because that’s the right thing to do and you will honor them because that’s what that person would want now that they are in eternity.
