All Things for His Glory

We are, naturally creatures in rebellion. What do I mean? Even the greatest things we do, if done outside of God's will and way are in rebellion against God. We find more freedom as we submit to Christ! Why? God is the designer. He imagined this world, and you, before time began. He knows how the world should work, what humanity should be, what YOU should be. When we go against the designer's dreams, we no longer are what He intended us to be. This is important!


Why is this important, though? Because in our rebellion against God and His dreams and designs for us, we become less than what He created us to be. We are adulterous, slanderous, idolatrous, murderous, and many more things beside. When we submit to His will in all things, when we seek to be with Him in all things, we begin to bring Him glory, and so He preaches to the world to return to His designs. This is why we must do all things for His glory. This is why we must seek to be in perfect obedience and submission to His will. When we bring God glory in all things, we show His supernatural power: to bring love and unity, as we obey His will. 1 Corinthians 10:23-33 “All things are lawful,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful,” but not all things build up. Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor. Eat whatever is sold in the meat market without raising any question on the ground of conscience. For “the earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof.” If one of the unbelievers invites you to dinner and you are disposed to go, eat whatever is set before you without raising any question on the ground of conscience. But if someone says to you, “This has been offered in sacrifice,” then do not eat it, for the sake of the one who informed you, and for the sake of conscience— I do not mean your conscience, but his. For why should my liberty be determined by someone else's conscience? If I partake with thankfulness, why am I denounced because of that for which I give thanks?


So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. Give no offense to Jews or to Greeks or to the church of God, just as I try to please everyone in everything I do, not seeking my own advantage, but that of many, that they may be saved.
