Our Lives Are to Show God's Love
Updated: Oct 13, 2019
Yesterday’s Bible verse of the day came from Philippians 1. The verses that hit me were Philippians 1:20-21. I had memorized verse 21 my entire life. Now I understood that living is Christ because our life should be to glorify Him.
Verse 18 says that our goal in life is to preach Christ. But what is Christ? We believe that Christ is the God in human flesh and the Word (John 1:1, 14). Matthew 22:37-40 says that the Word is 1) to love God with your heart, soul, and body and 2) love humans.
According to Psalty in Psalty’s Kid’s Praise 2 – A Joyful Noise when we show other people God’s love, we glorify God. In addition, my pastor says that loving God and giving Him credit for the love we have for others is to glorify Him.
Living for Christ is, therefore, to preach Christ by showing other’s His love to glorify Him.
