Does Your Life Honor God?

“Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Cor 10:31; KJV).  “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men” (Col 3:23).

It’s easy to separate our spiritual life from our daily activities but really if we are walking in the spirit the two are intertwined. We don’t have to be in church to be led by the spirit. According to these verses everything we do should be done as an offering to the Lord whether its washing dishes, closing a business deal or singing in the choir. On the job, we should go the extra mile, work with excellence and give no one reason to complain about our performance or attitude.

“Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.” (1 Peter 2:12) As Christians we should be setting an example to the world in the workplace, with our families and in everything we do and say. If we approach our day to day tasks as something done for God it won’t go unnoticed.         

Finally, let Jesus speak to us as quoted by the apostle John: “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another” (John 13:35). Let’s commit to show the world God’s love and to bring glory and honor to God at all times and in all places.

I love the Psalms; reading one a day is a good plan. David really shows his love, fear of and heart for God in his poetry. In writing Psalm 139 verses 23 and 24 King David humbled himself before his God and cried out that his heavenly Father would search his heart for any wickedness and show him how to walk in Godliness.

As with David, we cannot do this and walk the walk on our own; o how we need God in our lives. In Romans chapter 2 and verse 15 we are told that our born-again spirits, (hearts or consciences) will show us if we are right or wrong if we allow the Holy Spirit to illuminate and strengthen our spirits with the word of God (John 14:26; Rom 8:16).  

Get in the word, ask God to bring you revelation by the Holy Spirit as you read and meditate his word. Allow the spotlight of God’s word to show you where you need to change so you can draw ever closer to God. Remember it is not in our own strength but it is God who shows us the way and empowers us to change and be more like him: “being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ” (Phil 1:6; KJV).

Lord, flood us with your presence, your Holy Spirit today and have your way in our lives.

Get Off the Fence

God gave me a vision of a church full of people who had no revelation of God's word and no power to live the life he gives or change the world around them. He showed me these people leaving the church and going into the world; then I lost track of them, they were no different from everyone else.

My response was one of sadness that they missed out on all God had for them. God's response was a little different: "I know thy works, that thou art neither cold or hot: I would that thou wert cold or hot. So then, because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth" (Rev.3: 15-16; KJV).

Two stark verses but so worthy of our attention. Lukewarm is neither hot nor cold; these are the churchgoers sitting on the fence. Sitting on a fence must be uncomfortable. These people feel being in church is good insurance but they are not sold out for God. I am not sure how people can claim to be Christian if they are not sold out for God; if they are not hot. If people are cold, then at least they are honest and God can meet them at that point.

To be lukewarm is to be deceived, full of pride, trusting in our own resources (Rev 3:17), with no real perceived need of God. Notice, in verse 20 of chapter 3 of the book of Revelation, that Jesus pleads with people in the church to open the door of their lives to him, and take note he is addressing the church. We need him; only he is the source of abundant life (John 10:10) and the power to change us (Rom 8:11).

Christian Behavior

In Colossians 3:12-17 Paul gives us some guidelines as to how we as Christians should live. In verse 17 we read that we are to do and say everything with thankful hearts and in Jesus name. Wow, if we examined our every action and word in that light, we would need no further instruction.

Back in verse 12, we are exhorted to be merciful but also to do it in a tender manner. The apostle James said that God desired mercy before judgement (James 2:13). Is that worth another wow? In verses 12-13 of Colossians 3, Paul also directs us to be kind; that’s goodness in action. He says we must be patient and meek. Meekness is not being a mouse but describes a powerful man or woman of God who’s will and emotions are under control.

We are to walk in humility. This is being teachable; seeing ourselves as of no significance on our own but the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus (2 Cor 5:21), in whom (Christ) and with his strength, we can do all things (Phil 4:13). We must forgive, just as Christ forgave.

In verse 14, Paul gives us his most important instruction and that is to love as God loves us, with his unconditional love. In verses 15 and 16 we are told to allow God’s peace to rule in our hearts. How do we do that? Well, in verse 16, it says that we should have the word of God on the inside of us (Ps 119:165). This means taking the time to study and meditate the word to the point that it is such a part of us that it flows from us to others in songs of praise and adoration of our God. If we have the word growing in us, the Holy Spirit can respond to the faith we have in that word and develop all the attributes above in us.

Order Brings Abundance and Peace

God has placed clear order and authority in our lives and it is for our benefit. In the Old Testament there were judges, prophets and kings. Through Moses father in law, Jethro, God created a whole hierarchy of leadership to judge and govern Israel (Ex 18:13-26).

We are commanded to submit to governing authorities and to pray for them (1Tim 2:1) that: “we may lead a quiet and peaceable life” (1Tim 2:2; KJV). This would involve obeying the laws of the land, including traffic speed limits; ouch! Within the church we are also to submit to and obey those who exercise pastoral care in our lives (Heb 13:17); in fact, we are to honor these leaders and make their work easy as they represent God (1Tim 5:17; Heb 13:17).

In the marriage relationship, although there is to be mutual submission (Eph 5:21), the godly husband is to be the head as Christ is head of the church (Eph 5:22-33). Children are to obey their parents: “Children obey your parents……that it may be well with thee” (Eph 6: 1-3).

Order, discipline and submission were not put in place by God to limit us but to ensure our freedom, prosperity and peace. When we do things God’s way, we can enjoy the abundant life Jesus came to give us (John 10:10). Try it, I guarantee that it works.
