“Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (2 Corinthians 1:31). “Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father” (Colossians 3:17). What God requires of us in these verses is staggering! And utterly beyond our own ability. The life of faith extends to every part of our lives. Our every thought and action must be directed by our religion, by our relationship to God. Christians are not left to their own resources in anything. In everything we do, we must look to Christ’s command, looking for His help, aiming at His glory. Other people should see God’s grace at work in our lives. Those who live by faith will not try to make God serve their desires. They will seek to please Him, whatever their present condition may be.
