Worthy to receive, worthy to give

Re: Verse reading–Ephesians 4:1-16 (day six)  God is worthy. 
“Worthy to receive glory and honor and power”Revelation 4:11.

The nature of God makes giving to Him a moral and reasonable activity.  He deserves what we give Him.  Time.  Attention.  Offerings.  Praise.   He is worthy to receive it!  If He is worthy to receive, however, we must be (become) worthy to give.  In Ephesians 4, Paul urges such preparation of heart.  “I urge you, therefore, to live a life worthy of the calling you have received”v 1.  All of grace, but without the despair that none of us can now be what He desires or deserves, the Bible calls us to become servants of the Most High, reflecting in our own choices and character the wisdom and worth of the One who called us to Himself.  God is worthy of having worthy people bringing worthy gifts.  “Who can ascend into the hill of the Lord?. . .He that has clean hands and a pure heart.”Psalm 24:3
