We want our life, our work, and all that we do and say to glorify Christ.
We pray, read our Bible, keep the commandments, and guard our marriage vows. We show compassion to others and follow the Golden Rule. We are involved in church and strive to trust Jesus more. We exhibit a good work ethic.
All those are indeed vital to living a life that pleases Christ.
Lloyd Stilley, pastor of First Baptist Church in Gulf Shores, Alabama, noted that there is something more we can do to bring even greater glory to Jesus.
“Serving Christ by serving others is your destiny in this life,” Stilley said. “If serving Christ by serving others is your destiny in this life, then the best possible way to serve is by leading another person to Jesus.”
Helping someone come to forgiveness in Christ is the utmost service that a believer can do for Him, Stilley said. Telling an individual how to receive Jesus Christ as Savior is a Christian’s “best possible work.”
That brings glory to our King!
