The Spirit of Honor

Lesson Two


Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom for whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor .

Romans 13:7
Definition of Honor

Honor comes from an Anglo-French word onur and the Latin word honos . Let's examine three connotations for honor.

One is honored or esteemed highly in public view. This kind of honor is given to those with reputation. In the financial world, for example, Warren Buffet is an elevated name. In the world of real estate, there is Donald Trump. In the entertainment and music industry, Quincy Jones has a reputation. In ministry, we might consider Billy Graham or David Wilkerson as men of reputation worthy of honor.

Where you work or serve, who are the people of reputation that receive great honor?
Professional Credit

There are individuals who are honored for their professional accomplishments. They are decorated by their office and ceremonial rites. This kind of honor rewards integrity and an individual is guaranteed certain levels of honor. We might even call this "ranking honor," where individuals receive ascending levels of honor according to their promoted rank. In the ministry world, bishops, archbishops, and church fathers are honored with highest honor for achieving a certain place in their calling, ministry, and journey with the Lord. In the military, high ranking leaders are honored for their years of service and dedication.

Can you think of another example of an industry where greater honor is bestowed as one is promoted because of accomplishment?

The word honor is a root word for honorarium. It is given in the church/ministry world for the ministry or service one renders. It is a fee or payment for a professional service.

A culture has developed in the American church where contracts precede ministry presentation because certain individuals do not know how to honor the gift that is coming to their church or ministry.

Instead of reciprocation - presentation or ministry gift given and impartation released, then people sowing into a gift - we now have a business operation. There is very little impartation; it's all performance and contracts. The result is a lack of honor, reverence, and respect for certain dignitaries.

Truth Principle

"Most times, you can tell if you are honored by the honorarium you've been given."

Synonyms for honor are:

- Homage

- Deference

- Praise

- An expression of recognition

Describe a time when you were honored for presenting your ministry gift (e.g., preaching, teaching, the arts, etc.) .

Let's look at honor from Romans 13:7.

Honor Promise

Obey them that have 1 the rule over you, and submit yourselves...

Hebrews 13:17

Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom for whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor .

Tribute refers to taxes, duty, and certain levels of structure within civil structure. Paul's instruction is to honor the laws of the land. We must honor the laws of the land.


There are laws, rules and regulations in a Kingdom, a Country, a Nation or Land that have been put in place to govern the people that live in these respective places. So observing these laws, rules and regulations, and aligning to them, shows honor as it pertains to the specific protocols of the Land
