What If?

11 With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may bring to fruition your every desire for goodness and your every deed prompted by faith. 12 We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Paul ended the first part of his second letter to Thessalonika with a prayer. Notice it touches upon faith and the natural output of faith: good deeds. God loves us and wants us to love others. We do that by helping them in whatever way we can. The ultimate reason is so that we would glorify God. Isn’t that what our life is about anyhow?

What if…

What if everything we thought, said, or did was based on that principle alone? To get to that point, though, it would have to be in the forefront of our minds. Too often life gets in the way of what we really want to do, but that’s an excuse, isn’t it?

Don’t lose heart though. If your life is built on solid Biblical principles, you will glorify God. Sure you’ll slip up from time to time, but we still live in a fallen world. Know that God wants to be glorified through you just as much as you want your life to glorify Him. Just keep living life and giving Him the glory in everything you do.
