Live For His Glory

               

Live For His Glory

 

“And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again”  (2 Corinthians 5:15)

 

          It’s God’s will for you to have a beautiful life, with all your needs met, and everything working out excellently: your business prospering; you and the members of your family in good health, etc. But you must realize that as wonderful as that might be, that’s not all there is to Christianity. Part of the reason God has blessed and prospered you is so that you can make positive impact in the lives of others.

 

The ministry of the Holy Spirit, and of the Word of God in your life, isn’t restricted to you alone. He seeks to beautify the lives of those around you through you; that’s living for His glory; that’s a purposeful life. You must be able to influence your world positively and help somebody else become better through the power of God that works in you.

 

If you truly believe that Jesus died to save you, then you must continuously live your life for His glory by leading others to Christ, even if you’re persecuted for so doing. Paul faced greater persecution for the Gospel than any other apostle did in his day, yet he said, “none of these things move me (Acts 20:24). It doesn’t matter how fruitful or effective you might have been in other areas of your life, you must seek to excel in soul winning too, for you’re a co-labourer with the Lord (2 Corinthians 6:1). You’re His partner in taking the Gospel to the lost, hopeless, hurting, and downtrodden in the world.

 

This is a primary responsibility for you as a Christian. From the day you confessed the Lordship of Jesus, you ceased to live for yourself, but unto Him that bought you with a price. Your major preouccupation therefore, should be to fulfil His will, and bring Him glory at all times. 

 

Prayer

Dear Father, I thank you for giving me the opportunity and ability to influence those in my sphere of contact with the power of the Spirit. I thank you for your blessings and extraordinary provisions in my life. I live to honour you alone, by dedicating my whole life to the expansion of your kingdom, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
