This is going to be a short post because I am in the process of moving. In fact, if you are reading this on Saturday morning, I am moving even as we speak. It is not a major move; it is an in-town move. However, we have faced some other difficulties over the last few weeks (such as funky computer issues) and I just want this move to be done!
Today the verses I am looking at are a prayer that Jesus is praying for Himself, but as His role as God's Son. Please turn to John 17:1-4. In these verses, we see that Jesus is asking God to glorify Himself because He wants God glorified. He wants all people to see that God is the only true God and when Jesus is glorified, God is glorified.
This makes me ask myself if I am always doing things so that God is glorified. It is nice to be recognized and get compliments; however, we are to be doing things not for our own recognition but for God's. That is not easy for our human nature and that is when we are to be allowing our new nature to take over. Our new nature will always want God glorified. Jesus said that He brought glory to God by completing the work God had given Him to do on earth. That is the best way we can show God's glory, because the work He wants us to do is never going to be something that we can do on our own.
Are you doing the work God called you to do? Are you giving God the glory for the things He has done through you?
