1 Corinthians 10:31

Are We or Aren’t We

02/07/2020

God continues to spread the Word and love of Jesus!. If you haven’t liked our Ministry Page, please do HERE because every time you LIKE and share these devotionals, you help us reach people for Christ. 

You’re Invited! Join me this Saturday, 9-2. 

If someone were to ask you what makes your life, marriage, family, career, friendships “work,” what would you say? Are you successful because you’re a hard worker?  You’re conscientious? You’re a good listener?  It’s an important question. A more important question, though, is what makes your life, marriage, family, career, friendships work to the glory of God? Why is that an important question? Because if we are a Christian, 1 Corinthians 10:31 says that everything we do is to be to the glory of God. “Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”  Acts 4:11 reinforces this by saying Jesus is the stone that was rejected, but who became the CHIEF CORNERSTONE.” In other words, we’re to build our lives on Christ in such a way that they bring Him glory. If that’s not happening, we can begin drawing closer to Jesus.

JESUS, You are the Chief Cornerstone on whom we’re to build our lives and glorify You. Help us consider if we’re doing that and if not, how we can.

Do You Know Your Purpose in Life

01/08/2020

Do you know your purpose in life? Certainly we would agree it has to be more than the daily grind of work, paying bills, eating, drinking, sleeping, then repeating the next day. In case it’s been a while since you’ve thought about your purpose, 2 Corinthians 5:20 tells us what we are to be about doing. Our purpose is to be an ambassador for Christ. The verse goes on to explain, “as though God was making an appeal through us to people to be reconciled to God.”  Just as a country sends an ambassador to another country to represent its interests, God calls us to represent His interests to others; to reconcile people to Him. First Corinthians 10:31 clarifies the kind of ambassador we’re to be; saying, “…whatever you do, do to the glory of God.” Learn more about your purpose in Pray with Purpose, Live with Passion.

Heavenly Father, thank You that You give meaning and purpose to life. You call us to be Your ambassadors, to tell others how they can be reconciled to You through Jesus. Help us be  faithful ambassadors who bring You glory.

Eat UP

06/20/2017

UPLIFT is a blog that focuses on ways we can please the Lord by living our lives before Him in an UPLIFTing way. We can:

  • Wise UP and benefit by living according to His teachings.
  • Lift UP our eyes to Him when we don't know what to do.
  • Armor UP to be equipped to resist temptation.
  • Stand UP for our convictions.
But, how about the everyday subject of how we're eating? Ouch! I don't like to talk much about this topic, but bear with me. In a day where food is genetically engineered and super-sized, isn't it important that we eat UP healthily as unto the Lord? After all, the Bible does discuss this. Whereas the word "love" occurs 348 times in the Bible, "eat" occurs 527 times.
