Live Loved

“Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”

[1 Corinthians 10:31]

Poclaim God's Glory

Whatever? Whatever. Let your message reflect his glory. “Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16 niv).

Let your salvation reflect God’s glory. “Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory” (Ephesians 1:13–14).

Let your body reflect God’s glory. “You are not your own… Glorify God in your body” (1 Corinthians 6:19–20).

Your struggles. “These sufferings of ours are for your benefit. And the more of you who are won to Christ, the more there are to thank him for his great kindness, and the more the Lord is glorified” (2 Corinthians 4:15 tlb; see also John 11:4).

Your success honors God. “Honor the Lord with your wealth” (Proberbs 3:9 niv). “Riches and honor come from you” (1 Chronicles 29:12 ncv). “God… is giving you power to make wealth” (Deuteronomy 8:18 nasb).

Your message, your salvation, your body, your struggles, your success—all proclaim God’s glory.

[It’s Not About Me]

Gracious Father,

We pray that every facet of our lives would bring glory to you. We want to honor you with every struggle we face as well as every success. May our words and actions uplift your name. May the testimony of our own salvation draw others to you. May our lives be consistent proclamations of your glory. You deserve all the honor and praise,

Amen.

And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

[Colossians 3:17]

Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

[Galatians 5:16]

If you life according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.

[Romans 8:13]
