Monday's blog focused on serving a party of 1, God. Matthew 5:16 says "let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." But are my good deeds pointing people back to God?
Monday I mentioned a comment about shinning like the moon. How does the moon shine? (and here's a hint, if you google "moon shine" you will not get any references to the moon, but to alcohol.) But one web site described the moon shinning like this "The moon shines by reflecting sunlight. Without the sun, there would be no moonlight."
Without the sun, there would be no moonlight. Without the Son, would I be able to shine? Ephesians 2:10 says "For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. " Prepared in advance for us to do? You mean it was God's plan all along that I do this blog? To glorify him? Letting my light shine so that YOU may see him through me.
I pray you are seeing God through this blog. That you are encouraged, uplifted, filled with the Holy Spirit as you read God's word. And I, too, am encouraged. Because even if no one reads this blog, I am glorifying God because I am obeying him.
I AM serving a party of 1. I am serving God, just like he planned.
