LIVE UNTO HIS GLORY 2

– Follow The Example Of Jesus


“Whether you eat or drinklive your life in a way that glorifies and honors God.” 

1 Corinthians 10:31 (TPT)


 
Our Lord Jesus is the ultimate model and pattern of our Faith. Our true identity is in Christ.
 
Jesus came to unveil the mystery of godliness (1 Timothy 3:16). The mystery of godliness is the expression of the GOD-MAN (Jesus was revealed as fully God and fully man). 
 
Thus the mystery of godliness is not just the revelation of God to man; it is also the revelation of man’s originality to man.
Man’s renaissance of identity and purpose can only be found in Christ Jesus.
That is why we are charged through the scriptures to continue to behold Jesus.
As you behold Jesus you begin to live and function like Him. 
 
“…As He is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17).
 
To function like Jesus is to live the life God has predestined you to be conformed to His image and live like He did (Romans 8:29).
 
When you became born again, you received His life and nature. His purpose also became your purpose.
In Salvation, we were created to be in the likeness and image of Jesus.
“…Nevertheless I live yet not I but it is Christ that lives in me. The life that I live now in the flesh  I live by the faith of the Son of God…” (Galatians 2:20).
 
All that Jesus did was unto the glory of God. What else must be the purpose of your living and what you do?
It must be unto the glory of God just as Jesus lived.
Jesus lived to honor the Father above Himself.
 
We also have to live to honor the Father above ourselves. We don’t honor God just to win favor from Him. We honor the Father for who He is.
We don’t live like ordinary men, for they have no thoughts of God and don’t live to acknowledge Him nor glorify Him.
“For since the creation of the world, His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.” Romans 1:20-21 (NKJV).
However, as you are in Christ, the Prophecy of Isaiah is your reality.
“For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
 
The hearts of men are darkened and they walk in the futility of their thoughts because they have not acknowledged and glorified God; even though they see His attributes through creation.
 
But for us, our reality is different, when we beheld and received Jesus, the glorious light of the knowledge of God shone in our hearts. Therefore, we live daily to glorify and honor God.
Whatever you do, look beyond yourself interest, or satisfaction. Whatever you do must not be according to your will or desire but unto God’s glory and honor. 
You don’t do things just to please yourself. You don’t do things just because it is a sin or not. The question is:
 
How does it GLORIFY GOD?
How is your daily life, your speech, your conduct bringing glory to God and honoring Him?
This is how you emulate the example of Jesus.
 
Shalom.
DIG DEEPER
(Colossians 3:17; 1 Peter 4:11; Psalm 97:6; Isaiah 35:2; John 7:18; Isaiah 43:1,7)
 
WE PRAY
That we shall not live according to the futile thoughts and darkened hearts of men. But we will live everyday emulating Jesus (who glorified the Father in everything).
 
In the glorious name of Jesus.
 
BIBLE READING IN THE YEAR 2023

– I don’t live unto my own interest.
 
– I live unto God’s glory and honour.
