It's Not About You

It's not about You.

Tough statement.  I have witnessed seeing in a Bible Study one person open PDL, read that statement and then shut the book and put it down. 

In giving glory to God's name, the purpose of your life is greater than your personal fulfillment.  If you want to know why you were placed on this planet at this time then it begins with God.

  • puzzled?
  • glory of God
  • What will You live for?

The search for the purpose of life has puzzled people since the fall of mankind.  Why is it a puzzle.  We start from the wrong starting point.  We focus on ourselves in stead of focusing on the life purpose God has for us.

The ultimate goal of the universe is to show the Glory of God.  What is the glory of God?  It is WHO God is.  The essence of His nature; atmosphere of His presence; expression of His good and all of His other qualities.

Living for God's glory in our greatest accomplishment.  God's glory is best seen in Jesus Christ.

What is worship?  It is celebrating God's presence in our lives.  It is enjoying Him, motivated by love, thanksgiving, but not duty.  Worship is a lifestyle of enjoying God in all we do. 

The Church is commanded  to love one another.  We bring glory to God by serving others. (1 Peter 4:10-11).  We bring glory to God by telling others about him.  Introduce then to Jesus.

What will you live for?  You?  God?
This is the choice you need to make.  Will you live to see glory given to God?
