DAY 16 THURSDAY: AUGUST 2018

YOU WERE CREATED TO LIVE FOR GOD!

You are worthy, oh Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for you created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created (Revelation 4:11).

God is our Creator! He created every one of us in order for us to live for Him. None of us should live for himself, but we are expected to live our lives to the glory of the Lord. That is the reason why Jesus Christ said in Matthew 5:16, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” As Christians, we should know that God created us for a purpose, and that purpose is to live the life that will bring glory to God. Jesus Christ also died for a purpose, and that purpose is to win souls into God’s kingdom. Therefore, you were created to live your life to the glory of God Almighty.

Furthermore, we should take note of the fact that in Him, we live and exist. God has an assignment for every one of us; and He wants us to live and fulfill that assignment. We need the power of the Holy Spirit to be able to fulfill the destiny that God has given to each and every one of us. No wonder Apostle Paul says in Philippians 1:21, “For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” God did not create you to live the life that will glorify your fleshly desire; but rather to live a life that is worthy of His praise and adoration. The life you live as a Christian should glorify God and Him alone.

In fact God reigns in awesome majesty, praise and adoration. He is the Owner of the universe, the Creator of heaven and earth. That is why the Psalmist declared in Psalm 24:1, “The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein.” God does not live and exist for you; but rather you live and exist for Him. Without Him, you can never survive and be fulfilled in life. God created you for His own glory in order for you to live and obey His will; and His will for you leads to life fulfillment and glorious destiny in Christ Jesus.

Daily Tip: God created you for a purpose, and that purpose is to live your life to the glory of His. Shalom!

Golden Text: For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them (Ephesians 2:10).
