1 Corinthians 10:31 “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God”.
Often we separate our “church life” with the rest of our life. We go about the mundane tasks of working, shopping, driving, exercising, or socializing without considering how we can be honoring God; how we might be pointing others towards Him.
Even while doing the most routine of activities, we must do it to the glory of God.
But why? And how?
Because Christ lived a perfect life for us and then died a horrible death to be our perfect sacrifice. We don’t do these things to earn salvation. We can never earn it; it was a free gift of grace and has nothing to do with what your effort (Ephesians 2:8). You have to confess of your sins and accept His free gift of Salvation. Our gratitude is shown in a life of giving. Giving to Him and for Him. Romans 12:1 says to offer ourselves as living sacrifices; this is our true worship.
Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others (Philippians 2:4).
- Did something great happen to you? Thank God for it publicly.
- Going through a difficult time? Acknowledge publicly that God uses such things to grow us.
- In the midst of another beautiful day? Remind those near you of Gods amazing creation.
- Know someone who is struggling? Ask if you can pray for them. Share your faith with them.
- Someone offend you? Show them love and grace (like God did you).
- Know someone making bad choices? Love them enough to point it out. Love does NOT mean avoiding conflict and difficult conversations.
- Your time. Your money. Your talents.
