for His glory

This entry is what I have been meditating upon for a few days from The Resolution for Men cards

Resolution cards

Thought:

God wants you to seek Him and find Him so you can know Him and love Him.  His intent from the beginning has always been to use you for His glory.  And there is nothing greater, more fulfilling, or more important than living with this goal in mind.

Verse:

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one!  You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your strength.  Deuteronomy 6:4-5 (NKJV)

Additional Scripture that seems pertinent to me:

Jesus’ words of the greatest commandment …  Then one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, “Which is the first commandment of all?”  Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is one.  And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.  Mark 12:28-30 (NKJV)

Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.  1 Corinthians 10:31 (NKJV)

Tomorrow:

The hope of glory …

Considering the glory of God ….

About bwebbjr

A grandfather, father, husband, man, and a child of God who is following Christ Jesus and working out his salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work IN me, both to will and to work for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:12-13). I dodged my first bullet with cancer when a cancerous polyp was removed in a sigmoid colectomy surgery in August 2007. Four years later, in the midst of a second colectomy surgery we discovered I had Stage IV metastatic colon cancer. Rather than colectomy surgery I had colostomy surgery, which now means the colostomy bag is a part of my everyday life ... with the emphasis on life. God has given us a peace beyond understanding as my wife and I have traveled this journey. By the grace of God I am blessed to be a 6 plus year cancer survivor aka warrior. In writing, I am often wrestling with my own personal struggles and beliefs and in the midst God leads me to a lesson He wants me to learn ... or sometimes He simply touches me in the revelation of Himself. My hope is that the result you see here might touch your heart and glorify God. And let me be clear ... I am not the only one with something to say. Please join in the conversation sharing your faith, your cancer experiences, etc. I would love to hear from you. Bernie
