The Righteous Side Of Reverence

Throughout time, people across the world have demonstrated a deep reverence for the deity within their culture, history, and tradition.  Reverence steeped in profound respect, submission, and orthodoxy.  Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Taoism, among others.

Many of these deities have common traits; wisdom, insight, calmness, overpowering presence, generosity, and kindness as examples.  Likewise, each of them emphasizes specific behaviors that are required of followers to comply with as believers.

For Christianity, there are the Ten Commandments and the Words of the Bible, albeit, the core set of rules and expected behaviors for Christians to adhere.  Like many philosophers and thinkers, however, the inevitable question raised in seek of answers revolves around the “Why”.  As in, Why must I follow this rule?  What future does following this rule provide?  And conversely, What is the penalty for violating this rule?

The Bible is a collection of 66 books, written by different authors at different points in time.  The miraculous reality is a common theme, even though many of the authors of the 66 books never met each other, let alone, lived during the same period of time.

Often overlooked, at the core and foundation of the Bible and the Ten Commandments rests Morality.  At the base of what is right and wrong, the morality of life was established and handed down by Jesus Christ and given to Moses to share with humankind.  Of all that is ethical, just and right, the Word of God embodies morality for the ages.  Mankind has attempted to define morality, yet has continuously come up short, as incapable of divine wisdom.  Conversely, Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit and God (Divine Trinity), as the Supreme Being and Eternal Lord, singularly possesses and represents perfect knowledge and Truth.  This fact was exemplified by the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, followed by His Ascension into Heaven.

And without doubt, perfect knowledge and truth are accompanied and characterized by Supreme Power;  A power not of this world.

In truth, it is not enough to show reverence; it is not enough to offer respect.  It is only enough when we understand and acknowledge the Righteous Side of Reverence.

Comprehend the immense and unending Grace of God; Witness His Sovereign Power in the lives of His people; Testify to His Greatness with your life.  That… Is how you will live for eternity.

Which Side will You be on?  God Bless you, Be well.

If Today Was Your Last Day (Nickelback):
My best friend gave me the best advice
He said, “Each day’s a gift and not a given right.
Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind
And try to take the path less traveled by.
That first step you take is the longest stride.”
If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say “goodbye” to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you had?
If today was your last day
Against the grain should be a way of life
What’s worth the prize is always worth the fight
Every second counts ’cause there’s no second try
So live it like you’ll never live it twice
Don’t take the free ride in your own life
If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say “goodbye” to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you had?
And would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce old memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
And would you find that one you’re dreamin’ of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you finally fall in love
If today was your last day
If today was your last day
Would you make your mark by mending a broken heart?
You know it’s never too late to shoot for the stars
Regardless of who you are
So do whatever it takes
‘Cause you can’t rewind a moment in this life
Let nothin’ stand in your way
‘Cause the hands of time are never on your side
If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say “goodbye” to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you had?
(Would you? Would you?)
And would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce old memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
And would you find that one you’re dreamin’ of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you finally fall in love
If today was your last day

Eternity Road (The Moody Blues):
Hark listen here he comes
Hark listen here he comes
Turning, spinning, Catherine wheeling
Forever changing
There’s no beginning
Speeding through a charcoal sky
Observe the truth we cannot lie
Travelling eternity road
What will you find there?
Carrying your heavy load
Searching to find a peace of mind
You’ll see us all around
You’ll see us all around
Turning, spinning, Catherine wheeling
Forever changing
There’s no beginning
You’re so very far from home
And so very much alone
Travelling eternity road
What will you find there?
Carrying your heavy load
Searching to find a peace of mind
