“…Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. ” – {Matt 5:16}.


DO YOU WANT TO SEE GOD GLORIFIED? Then “DO GOOD!” Find someone in need and Do a good deed,  motivated for His glory. It is not a matter of lack of opportunity but at times a lack of love and concern for His fame that opportunities are not taken up which He places before us. And unfortunately, like the two religious people who walked deliberately, conscientiously, choosing to walk on the other side of the street from the man who had been jumped on and left for dead. They had opportunity, they rejected it, they rejected Him, they rejected a man in need. Loveless! They knew truth but they were devoid of love, they chose not to obey Him, ultimately rejecting His Word! Thank God there was a “GOOD Samaritan,” who saw, stopped, stooped to help and serve the injured man and take him to a place of safety and assure the person that if the injured man needed anything while he went on his way about his business when he returned he would take care of any expenses. Jesus told this story on what it means to “LOVE” your neighbor.

SOMEONE Else’s misfortune, their need is YOUR OPPORTUNITY to make a choice, choose to walk by or choose to walk towards the person and help by DOING GOOD and showing, demonstrating love and in doing so, – God is glorified.

“The word glory as related to God in the Old Testament bears with it the idea of greatness of splendor. In the New Testament, the word translated “glory” means “dignity, honor, praise and worship.” Putting the two together, we find that glorifying God means to acknowledge His greatness and give Him honor by praising and worshiping Him, primarily because He,and He alone, deserves to be praised, honored and worshiped.”-{gotquestions.com}.

4 Truths to personally consider, remember and apply…“I am,…”

  1. CREATED For His Glory; Everyone who is called by My name, And whom I have created for My glory…“-{Ish 43:7}
  2. PURCHASED…To Glorify Him With My Body; “Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body. “- {I Cor 6:19-20}. “If you address as Father the One who impartially judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your stay on earth; knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.  “-{1 Peter 1:17-20}
  3. PURPOSE To Do All For His Glory; -“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. – {1 Corinthians 10:31}-
  4. TESTIMONY“…Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. ” – {Matt 5:16}

GLORIFY GOD; “So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.”-{Gal 6:10}. You have the capacity. Choose to Glorify Him! You have opportunities, and all people are candidates.
