Francis Woodcock, A.B. (1614-1649) was a faithful member of the Westminster Assembly, esteemed as a scholar and an excellent Reformed preacher.
How do you honor God? What does it mean to give God honor, or for that matter, to give him glory? Is there something which men add to God? Francis Woodcock explains this most important topic in that, whether God is honored, or dishonored, so God in turn, honors men or dishonors them in judgment. His main text is 1 Samuel 2:30, “For them that honor me, I will honor; and them that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.” He shows the benefits of honoring God, and detriments of dishonoring him.
If God makes special note of being honored, and above all things is tender of his own honor, then God shows himself to be a jealous God – jealous of his honor and glory, something he will not share or allow to be dishonored. There is nothing else so dear to him which he will not give away. God will part with his only begotten Son. He will give men his Holy Spirit. He will give men his grace. He will give men heaven and happiness. But God will never, ever, give away his “glory and honor.”
Also added to this treatise is a second work called, “Christ’s Warning to His Church of His Coming,” which is a powerful sermon on Rev. 16:15, “Behold I come as a thief: blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.”
