Live for God’s Glory

A.W. Tozerby A.W. Tozer

That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 15:6

It may be difficult for the average Christian to get hold of the idea that his daily labors can be performed as acts of worship acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. We must practice living to the glory of God actually and determinedly. By one act of consecration of our total selves to God we can make every subsequent act express that consecration. By meditation upon this truth, by talking it over with God often in our prayers, by recalling it to our minds frequently as we move about among men, a sense of its wondrous meaning will begin to take hold of us.

The New Testament accepts as a matter of course that in His incarnation, our Lord took upon Him a real human body. He lived in that body here among men and never once performed a non-sacred act. Brethren, we must offer all our acts to God and believe that He accepts them. We should then keep reminding God in our times of private prayer that we mean every act for His glory. We thus meet the temptations and trials by the exercise of an aggressive faith in the sufficiency of Christ.

The Good Sower

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Imagine you’re a farmer who hired two people to sow your fields. You give them each a bag of seed of equal size. At the end of fifteen minutes, one has sown all his seed, but the other has just barely started. What are you going to do? You’re going to give the one who has sown abundantly more seed. You’re going to resupply them quickly, give them extra, and get ready to provide them with still more. You’re going to give to the person who has sown the seed. It only makes sense.

In the same way, God calls us to do His will, to sow His Word, His will, and His blessings into this world. But if you’re not sowing, how can He give you more? Thus if you are sowing, He will give you more and more and more. So be a wise sower, and start giving this world His word, His gospel, your time, your service, your ministry, your money, your treasures, yourself. For as you give, so you shall receive – from the God who never fails to give “seed to the sower.

Today’s Mission – Today, start sowing abundantly. Sow the Word, sow blessings, sow to His purposes, His ministry, sow to the world. And God will sow to you.
