Who Get’s The Glory?

This has been a wonderful few days of ministering with one of the young pastors on our staff.  Each day I have been blessed to work with Pastor Rich.  It’s easy to say, “I know someone,”  But it’s another to really know them.  I have been blessed this week to serve as a team with my brother and to offer support to the rest of our team.

As I read the book of Galatians this morning, I was pricked in the heart by the last verse of chapter one, “And they glorified God in me,” 1:24. Here the Apostle Paul reminded the church that a life that is surrendered to Christ is a life that brings glory to Christ alone.  I was convicted about how often I want the glory to be about me.  I am so thankful that God is changing my life as I draw closer to Him.

I look back over my life as see so many times when I struggled with God over who get’s the glory.  Brothers and sisters the gospel is always hindered when we are presenting two lord’s!!!  We must come to the place where we can genuinely say, “I have been crucified with Christ, it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life I live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me,” 2:20.

When you live the Christ life, He is lifted up and you are lifting Him up by serving Him in holiness and in humility.  Please pray that our team exhibits this character as we complete the last half of our journey.  Pray for Rich and I that those who come to hear us would only see Christ and that we would desire His glory alone.

We are praying for each of you, that in your individual lives, Christ alone would get the glory.
