In Matthewâ€™s gospel, Jesus will say in Matthew 28, â€śGo, make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name [singular] of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.â€ť
God does not give his glory to another. Therefore, when the glory of God is seen in Jesus, we know that Jesus is God. When people worship an angel, the angel always says, â€śNo, donâ€™t do that!â€ť But when people worship Jesus, Jesus accepts their worship!
Thatâ€™s why C. S. Lewis said that if Jesus is not Lord, then either Jesus is a liar, or else he is a lunatic.
You cannot simply â€śrespectâ€ť Jesus. Anyone else who accepts the worship of his fellow creatures is either deluded or devious. If he is who he says he is, then you need to worship him!
What are you going to do with Jesus?
Will you humble yourself and submit to the Son of God? Or will you insist on maintaining your tiny little kingdom of one?
