Bringing Glory To Him


"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.... It is the Lord Christ you are serving" (Col.3:23).

In doing all we can do for God's glory, and seeking to avoid anything that would be inconsistent with it, we are able to make a great discovery. That discovery is a meaning to life that would be otherwise incomprehensible and utterly impossible... Even the things of life that we find difficult or painful are able to take on new meaning when we view them as opportunities to serve and bring glory to the Lord. I think that we sometimes get lost in the "big ticket" sacrifices we make and forget that God is glorified in the little day-to-day things that we do to serve Him. Today's verse lets us know how a real Christian life is to be led... It says: "whatever you work at, work at it with all your heart..." To bring glory to Him, we must have a willingness to do both the big stuff and the small stuff. Jesus put it this way: "In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven" (Matt.5:16)... We let our lights shine when we do not sacrifice purity for pleasure and maintain integrity between our principles and what we actually do... We glorify Him by keep our promises and following through on our responsibilities. We bring glory to God, when like the Good Samaritan, when we learn to put first things first, in doing whatever needs to be done. As we begin a new week, lets think about what we can do to bring Him glory....

Have a great start to your week... Begin it with a RAK or two... Love mark Phil.4:11
