…let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:16
Each day we believers should live to glorify God.
. …present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Romans 12:1
Our lives should be a living testimony to His love, mercy and goodness, that should be our daily goal.
How can we do that daily? Well, scripture tells us that whatever we do we should do it for God’s glory.
- Letting your light shine before others is something we can do daily. By exhibiting the Fruits of the Spirit we can bring God glory and others, especially non-believers, see that in us when we are patient, kind, loving, doing good and being cheerful. ..the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Galatians 5:22-23
- Eating and drinking can be done in a way that honors God and brings Him glory.
Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1Corinthians 10:31
A simple way to do that would be to always say grace before eating or drinking. Also, eating or drinking moderately, not over indulging, would definitely glorify Him. Sharing our food and drink with others would bring Him glory also. These are just a few simple ways we can bring Him glory throughout our day.
- Praising God and Thanking God for everything is a way to bring Him glory.
I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify your name forever.
In the morning thank Him for another day, during the day thank Him for all the little things you experience in your life, praise Him for His creation, and His love for you. There are myriad ways you can thank Him and praise Him daily. Think of some and then make it a point to do so.
I thank and praise You for who You are, the One True God, who loves me so much that You gave Your Only Begotten Son to die on the cross for my sins. I want to always bring glory to Your name in whatever I say and do, wherever I am and with whoever I might be. Each day God I want to do the good works You have prepared for me to do for You to bring You glory. Each day I want to let my light shine before others so they will see it and glorify You. Each day I want to serve others in Your name, and bring You glory by exhibiting the Fruits of the Spirit for all to see. In everything I do, think, and say, I want to bring glory to Your name. That is my heart Father God, and I pray for the strength and wisdom I need to accomplish that daily. Jesus said in John 15:8 “By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit;” So, I want to bear much fruit in my life that You might be glorified. Thank You God, that I have that opportunity daily. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
