Think about this verse –
“Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 10:31)
Our lives can glorify God. The things we do can glorify God. That means that the things we do can point people to God. The question is not, “Can I glorify God?” The question is, “Will I seek to point people to God by what I do?” Those are two totally different questions.
The first question ponders if there is a separation between ‘God’s stuff’ and ‘my stuff’. The second has already settled that. The second question asks if we will decide to make what we do point people to God. The wall between the ‘God’s stuff’ and ‘my stuff’ has been torn down. Now, we are considering how to use those things that we are doing to point people to God.
How do we do it? We do it by, as we are told in God’s Word that, “we are taking every thought captive to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:5). This is how we do it… We keep asking, “How can I use this encounter to point someone to Jesus?” Don’t worry about doing it perfectly. Don’t worry that you might have do it differently as you mature in the faith. Just start now. Start asking how Jesus can be shown or glorified as you make decisions. As we on purpose take captive how we think, the repeated practice of letting Jesus be boss of our thinking will be like exercising a new muscle group. The more we exercise it, the greater power and greater stamina that muscle group has. So it is with the practice of making Jesus the boss of our thinking. The more we do it, the more natural and helpful such thinking will become. We choose to glorify God and take every thought captive to the Lordship of Jesus decision by decision. Did you know that you can do that in everyday life choices? You can. It isn’t just in the ‘God stuff’ that we can share the hope of Jesus or bring Him glory. It is every day. How will you do it today?
