To Be More, Than To Do

being

The Purpose of God’s work is to bring glory to Himself.

The purpose of all we do should also bring Glory to God. It is the responsibility of all creation to glorify God.

If in our lives, our works or even our conversation, we bring dishonor to God, we have failed to do the Will of God.

When we do what God desires, we will naturally Glorify Our Lord and Our Friend, which will bring honor to The Father.

Our calling is not in our doing, our calling is a call to be like Him. Once we are who God wants us to be, we can really be used for the things He wants us to do.

Romans 12 verse 1 and 2:

V1: “Therefore, brothers {and sisters}, by the mercies of God< i urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your spiritual worship”.

V2: “Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing and perfect will of God”.

1 Thessalonians 4 verse 7:  “For God has not called us to impurity, but to sanctification”.

It is in the being more like Him, we will succeed, more than just doing in His Name.

Colossians 3 verse 12 to 17: Tells us to put on Who He is. Our first doing is a surrender to Him, allowing Him to take off, all the things that would stop us from becoming more like Him.

V 15: “And let the peace of the Messiah, to which you were also called in one body, control your hearts”.

But once we become a Child of God, He is always there to help, we are never alone. Let everything we do bring honor to His Name.

Acts 17 verse 28; “For in Him we live and move and exist”.

Our self life, becomes buried in Him, so our doing life comes out of Him. The More time we consciously spend with Him, the more we will become like Him.

Let all our doing, come from our life of being transformed to be more and more like Him.

God Bless.
