Day #5 – For His Glory

Friday, March 29th, 2013

Philippians 1:9-11

And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ-to the glory and praise of God.

Reflection

This passage was part of the beginning of Paul’s letter to the church in Philippi. Here he expressed his love for the church to know God deeper and that this love is from Christ himself. He desired that the church have the proper discernment in their actions, so they can stand ready to face our Creator one day. There was a hopeful anticipation that the church will reap what they sow in love, living daily for the praise and glory of our God.

Response

In some form, all of us have this craving to get better in how we are with each other, our families, at work, schools, within the church. And in any situation, we don’t have to compartmentalize who we have become as children of God. The encouragement is that we do it all for the glory of our Father in heaven. To receive this prayer and encouragement and in the end, it is our heart’s desire that as we grow that it may be to the Lord’s glory and praise. Let’s end this week praising, thanking, lifting up songs of gratefulness to the One who is above all!
