Glorify ~ Key Verses ~ GLORIFYTHELORD

“So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”

1 Corinthians 10:31 NLT

Growing up in a biology influenced family we had a few magnifying glasses around.  As a kid a magnifying glass was a wonderful thing.  With it the small things hidden to my eyes became visible –bigger.  Bugs are awesome!  And then from another perspective, the light of the sun could be focused in such a way to burn patterns on paper and leaves.  For me 1Corinthians 10:31 works that way.  It brings my life into focus and it focuses the light and majesty of God on my life.

Magnify God with my life.  My life lead by Jesus–the small decisions of daily life can reveal the glory of God.

Focus God on my life.  My life lead by Jesus–the intent to bring glory to God submits my life to the sometimes searing and burning intensity of God.  His Spirit and His Word create new patterns and burn at what is keeping me from Christlikeness.

“So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
1 Corinthians 10:31
