We Must Not Cut Our Lives In Two!

"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do–do it all for the glory of God!" 1 Corinthians 10:31

True religion is simply living out the principles of Christianity in one's ordinary week-day life! It is getting the Bible, and the prayers, and the church services–into thought and act and character!

We must not cut our lives in two, and call one part secular–governing it by one set of principles; and then regard the other part as sacred–to be controlled by another set of rules. ALL of life should be made sacred, in the sense that everything is to be done in such a way as to please God, under the direction of His counsel in His Word. We have just as much true religion, as we get into our week-day life–and not a whit more! Whatever we do, even to eating and drinking–we should do to the glory of the Lord Jesus!
