Are you glorifying Him with your life?
You can be one step closer to living out your calling when you realize that God not only calls you to obey Him, but He calls you to glorify Him with your life.
God will often lay something on our hearts that He wants us to accomplish for His glory. And there is no greater joy than depending on His strength to accomplish it through us and then seeing Him get the glory for it.
When Jesus said “ask whatever you wish and it will be given you” He followed it up by saying “This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples” (John 15:8).
Bearing fruit (good works) and being Christ’s disciple is not an option for a follower of Christ. It is a given. It will automatically happen as you obey Him, remain in Him and honor Him with your life.
Think about where you are working, what you are doing day in and day out, whom you are coming in contact with. Are you showing people around you that you possess the love of Christ, that you are transformed by the power of His Holy Spirit, and that you are the recipient of an eternal inheritance? I believe if we read Ephesians 1 each day and remembered all we have in Christ, it would bubble over in our lives and make an impact on how we live.
Everything you say and do should be a testimony to others of whom you love and what He’s done for you. Scripture tells us “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God,” (1 Corinthians 10:31).
Ask God how you can glorify Him in a greater way this year.
And then share with me what He is laying on your heart about how He wants to be glorified in you. Together, we can discover His dream for you and His calling on your life.
