All for His Glory

TUESDAY, JULY 1, 2014

Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.— 1 Corinthians 10:31
 One of my all-time favorite movies is Chariots of Fire, the story of Eric Liddell, a heroic, committed Christian from Scotland who competed in the 1924 Paris Olympiad, winning a gold and bronze medal in the 400-meter and 200-meter races, respectively.
During one scene in the movie, Eric’s sister Jenny, also a committed Christian, was upset that her brother was competing. She thought he was wasting his time and reminded Eric that God made him for Himself.Eric told her, “Jenny, you’ve got to understand. I believe that God made me for a purpose — for China. But He also made me fast. And when I run, I feel His pleasure.” As the story unfolds, he glorifies God because of the stand that he makes at the Olympics.

Whatever we do, we should seek to glorify God, whether it is academics, sports, business, or something else. We should do it in such a way as to bring glory to the God who made us. As 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 reminds us, “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

You can serve God and glorify Him in whatever He has called you to do. Everyone has abilities that have been given to him or her by God. So you can glorify Him as a construction worker. You can glorify Him in the medical field. You can glorify Him in professional sports. You can glorify Him in graphic design. Whatever it is that you do, you can bring glory to Him.
