There are many motives for what people do. But when it comes to ministry, the many motives should line up behind the fact that the work of ministry is done for the glory of God. Everything that people do in church circles has a motive. Some are good while others are not that good. But anything that takes the glory away from God should not be tolerated. The focus of every effort is that God should be clearly glorified.
It takes a continuous conscious effort to line up everything done in ministry towards glorifying God. It’s easy to enjoy the moment and the attention. We must remember not to forget to channel every bit of glory to God. This is a culture that is acquired over time with a deliberate focus on the Lord. Don’t even give the glory to what God is doing. All the glory belongs to Jesus.
SCRIPTURE READING: John 12:32
And when I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw everyone to myself.”
Dear God, I thank you because everything that I do is for your glory. May I be able to line up everything done in ministry towards glorifying You. Grant me the grace to channel every bit of Glory unto You. Amen.
