The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

Do All To The Glory Of God

“Or do you not know that your body is a temple to the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NASB)
What a vast change would come in our daily lives if we would remember constantly that Jesus sees every move we make, hears every word we say, and knows every thought that passes through our mind. If we would remember that He is present with us each moment of each day, many things we do would be left undone, many words we speak would be left unspoken, and many subjects on which our thoughts now dwell would be put aside. He is our representative before God, and we are His representatives before men. Therefore our words and actions make up a testimony either for Christ or against Him before unbelievers. If our lives bring honor and glory to God, we will lead others to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior; but if we dishonor God by participating in things of the world and living as the world lives, unbelievers will see nothing in us to cause them to thirst for the living water or hunger after righteousness.
In Christ we live and move and have our being. The branch severed from the vine cannot bear fruit. We live because Jesus lives, we have victory because He came forth victorious. He is heir of all things, therefore in Him we too are heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ. Since God, through His Son, has done so much for us, it is our duty to honor Him with all that we have and all that we are. As Paul admonished the Corinthians, “Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” (1 Cor. 10:13)
