Last week in Sunday school, we were talking about success and how that looks in God’s eyes versus the world’s eyes. Somebody asked how they were supposed to separate the two different areas of their life.. the sacred and the secular. And Adam’s answer so completely matched with what I believe.

When we’re followers of Christ, there shouldn’t be sacred and a secular parts of our lives. When we make a decision to truly follow Him, any separation between sacred and otherwise should dissolve, because everything we do and say should be done to bring glory to God.

As we learn what it means to follow Jesus, even the everyday routine tasks should take on a new dimension — that of glorifying God.

“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” — Colossians 3:17, NIV

Similarly, 1 Corinthians 10:31 says, “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”

Whatever you do.

So everything I say, everything I do, everything I think… I should do it all to bring glory to God. Every attitude I have, everything I pursue in life, everything I set my heart on.

When I am delighting in following Jesus, all of these things will shine with a reflection of Him.

Please keep on praying for Jon and his family.. and catch up with his story if you haven’t already. His next MRI is coming up on June 30th.
