who do we really glorify?

How much glory do we give our idols on TV or on the sports fields? Do we talk about them a lot, try to live like them, do the same or wear the same as them? Do we raise up Christian speakers, or leaders? Do we quote them or try to talk like them? What about the music we listen to? Can we sing the songs off by heart even though they are secular and say things that are not godly?

When does God Himself get our glory? When does He get our time, space and undivided attention? Do we talk about Him to everyone we meet on the bus, in the shops or even those we go to church with? Do we quote His Word and try to live as He wants? Do we try to speak and live in a godly way and make a stand for what is right? Do we live a holy life that doesn’t taint us or our walk?

We are made in Gods image, and are designed to reflect His glory. Do we?

We are walking adverts for the Kingdom of God and the work Jesus did on the Cross. How are we to bring others into our faith if we don’t live any differently to them? How can we tell of the work of Calvary if we don’t show the results of that work and have victory in our lives? Our souls reflect what we put in them. If all we do is put in them what we see on TV or what we read that is not godly or have inappropriate things in them, then that is what we will show to others. If we have unforgiveness, hate, unloving hearts and attitudes to ourselves and others, that is what we will show.

Jesus had victory on the Cross so we don’t have to live defeated lives. When we live in victory, we have victory over evil and lies. We show faith and total belief in Jesus and the blood He shed that gives us new life in Him. How many more people can be won for Him if we lived more like Him and less like the world?

    Garbage in, garbage out or love in , love out. It depends upon who and what you spend time with. That is why it is important to spend time with Christ every day.

    It is such a privilege to spend time with God. Thank you for the reminder to put Him above all else.
