Glory to God

"The ultimate goal of the universe is to show the glory of God. It is the reason everything exists, including you...What is the glory of God? It is who God is."

It is our purpose, it is why God created us, to bring God glory. How do we do that? By living out what God calls us to, by using the gifts and talents that God has given us. Jesus talked about having brought God glory, because he did what God set him on earth to do. Because of all that God has done for us we try and bring God glory by doing our best to fulfill the mission God has set before us. Each one of our missions will look slightly different in how we are to go about it, but it seems to me all of them will be similar in that we will be serving God through serving our neighbor.

Let me leave you with two questions that Warren proposes today and I ask you, "Will you live for your own goals, comfort, and pleasure, or will you live the rest of your life for God's glory, knowing that he has promised eternal rewards?... Who are you going to live for -- yourself or God?"
