Do Everything For the Glory of God

“So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31


I wanted to share some light for your day from my inspirational devotional series from Christ for the Nations…

Life would look so much different if we did everything in and for Love. I’ve been thinking about this lately – if we didn’t care so much what people thought we’d be free. In fact we’re already free because we’re really living for an audience of One – His opinion is the one that matters most.

What we do for God isn’t done in fear, intimidation, obligation or trying to impress or gain love, affirmation or awards – God Himself is the greatest reward & blessing we could ever receive. Living out our purpose and dreams comes out of a love for God and people, a passion God gives us & desire to change people’s lives to allow them to flourish because of the light we’re given to share…

“So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31. As God’s children, we’re called to do all things in excellence – both in exercising our gifts and in doing what we may see as menial tasks like cleaning the bathroom at home or church. I spent a year interning at my church and this was one of the biggest lessons we learned as we cleaned windows – how every task and person matters to the Kingdom because we all work together for a greater Dream.

Steven Curtis Chapman has a great song “Do Everything” that would fit perfectly playing in the background as you read this;). What if everything we did mattered to God, not just the big, “important things”? What if we viewed every part of our day as an opportunity to give our best in worship and love to Him, our “utmost for His highest,” as Oswald Chambers says in one of my favorite devotional books.

The next time you’re serving others or even scrubbing the bathtub, remember to do it for the glory of God who loves us and who deserves our best at all times. He’s given us blessings beyond imagine –the very breath we take for granted and the life we live is a gift from Him and an opportunity to serve Him in the big, the small, the ordinary and the seemingly trivial. Invite God into your day and do life with the Giver of life, the greatest Lover of all, in everything you do. -Julene Fleurmond, CFNI Devotionals
