We glorify God by doing what He tells us to do not simply what we want to do.
Glorifying God is directly connected to fulfilling our destiny.Tony Evans, Called for a Purpose
Jesus wonderfully set the ultimate example for us in fulfilling our destiny and living out our purpose; our divine calling. John 17:4 exemplifies this supremely.
That ultimately is to bring glory unto the Father, for the Son, by the Spirit with our time, talent and treasure.
1) Unto – For – By
2) Father – Son – Spirit
3) Time – Talent – Treasure
I coin that ‘the trifecta of trinities’.
One thing we can definitely apply and learn from Christ was His focus on mission and pleasing God, our Father, first and foremost.
Christ dutifully carried His cross to the point of utter exhaustion. He then willing went up on it bearing the unfathomable.
Jesus instructed us that we must carry our own cross. We are to be like Him, in the best way possible; by good works and by steadfast faith.
We find the abundant life not through ease and comfort by overcoming Unto – For – By God, by giving it up.
We are fools to try to keep what we shall lose. We are wise to sacrifice what we can not keep, so that we gain all the more forever more which begins and ends in Christ. That is exactly what the Father did for His Son. Christ, our great High Preist and brother, shall advocate for us. Amen? Amen!
Either way, we all will glorify God.
Lord, You are the way, the truth and the light. Guide my and help me Lord Jesus to be a mini You.
Ultimately Lord, I pray my will shall be Your will. Me we be in accord, in unity. Great is Your faithfulness. Great is Your faithfulness, Lord unto me.
I pray what Moses prayed in Exodus 33:8, “I pray You, show me Your glory.”
Jesus want this for YOU. That’s certainly not my original thought. I know it for the BIBLE tells me so. And He tells and loves you too. What are you waiting for?
