“he did not give glory to God”


Acts 12:23


          Have you ever wondered what your purpose in life is?  The simple answerer is to glorify Christ.  He created us for that purpose.  Whatever praise or congratulations we get in our life is to be inwardly turned towards our heavenly Father.  Our reason?  Because He is so worthy to be praised.  When you realize how personal, powerful, and loving the God that created the universe is, it becomes a natural reaction to praise Him in all things.

Application:  Think about the things in your life that you have not given God glory over, even if they are extremely small.  Ask Him to help you look to Him in all things, and give Him praise in all things.
