Our world is preoccupied with celebrities. Pop culture elevates folks who have high profile achievements, significant wealth or envied popularity or status. People exalt them, celebrate them, and sadly make them their idols and life models.
People can appropriately be celebrated and appreciated for their accomplishments. Yet the reality is, there’s always someone on the heels of the rich and famous who will eventually push them out of culture’s spotlight, taking their place for the next season.
There is only One who never loses fame. There is only One who never loses honor. There is One, and only One who is eternally worthy of glory, praise, and worship. There is only One who has permanent celebrity status. The psalmist said it this way in Psalms 97:9 (NIV) “For you, Lord, are the Most High over all the earth; you are exalted far above all gods.” John, the apostle, described his vision of the worship in heaven with these words in Revelation 4:9-11(NIV) “Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say: ‘You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.’”
Take time today to worship the only One who is worthy of your worship!
