Necessity of Honor
Text: Ephesians 6:1 – 3
The foundational principle of living a godly life is to honor your father and mother.
A. The apostle Paul quotes the 5th commandment and the first commandments of how we relate to one another given by the Lord to Moses.
Exodus 20:12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the Lord your God gives you.
Paul uses the imperative verb form – this indicates that it is a command.
Singular – it is an individual requirement of life – it is not a corporate responsibility – a church is only corporately faithful when we are individually faithful to the word of God.
