To God Be the Glory

“And they glorified God in me.” Galatians 1:24

How many of us are using the platform that God has given us to get glory for ourselves? (Answer within)

Today’s scripture was laid on my heart as I read how Paul explained how God converted him and prepared him for ministry. We must realize and know that God uses us to showcase his glory to the world. In doing so, the world will see things in you and marvel. I know you’re asking, “How will God get the glory in my life amongst unsaved family, friends, coworkers, etc.? It’s simple. God has placed us all in a place to make an impact. When others see us love despite being mistreated, God gets the glory. When others see you forgive someone who blatantly hurts, God gets the glory. This type of lifestyle attracts people to the “light” that shines within like light that attracts insects to a light post. It generates a lot of buzz! So it is with us, when we live for Christ God puts His light within us to attract the insects(unbelievers)and it creates a lot of buzz so God can get the glory. Jesus said in Matthew 5:16:”Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven.”

We are God’s representatives on this earth. The closet the world will ever see God is through us, the believer. It’s up to us to maintain integrity and transparency in our relationship with God. It is then that people will see God’s light in us and we will have the same testimony that Paul had: “And they glorified God in me.”
