Introduction: A household consist of those dwelling together under the same roof. It is the will of God that we be a blessing to those belonging to the household of faith that is those who are connected with us by reasoning of our Christian heritage. In the household of faith, there are different members and each member is different from the other but unique in every way. God is the one who sets us up as members of the same family and it is His desire for us to be stable and set in His household.
Honor means to place value on something, great regard, distinction, high respect, and high public esteem. Dishonor means to treat as common, treat in a disrespectful or demeaning manner. Eli was the high priest of Shiloh, the last Israelite judge before the rule of the kings, a descendant of Aaron who enjoyed the priestly covenant that God made with them because of Phinehas’ zeal for Him (Numb.25:10-13). In 1 Sam. 2:12 Eli was aware of the behavior of his sons but he rebuked them too lightly (Prov.3:12; Heb.12:6, Prov.11:14).
The number one challenge that Christians have is discovering the purpose of God for their life and why God created them (vs.28). We are chosen my God and He had predestinated us for a purpose as royal priesthood (1Pt.2:9); royalty, priests and kings unto God. Kings rule by decrees and that which is decreed must come to pass. In the natural no king is a priest at the same time except the children of God. A priest is on who ministers unto God.

God is inviting us into a place of higher calling; He is calling us unto higher ground and we must respond to the call.
