2 Thessalonians 1
10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
11 Wherefore we also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:
12 That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
God has given each of us a higher calling! It’s a calling that is BIGGER than any goals that we could come up with on our own. We are called to glorify JESUS CHRIST!
Notice how Paul said, “because our testimony among you was believed.” Our number one priority this week should be to keep our Christian testimony (our salvation testimony) in line with glorifying God! We cannot possible call ourselves a true follower of Christ, while living to follow everyone BUT Christ in our day to day. Paul’s salvation testimony- where God had brought him- was his number one validating point of reference. Through his salvation testimony he traveled the world bringing change.
We know we are succeeding when we are living a life that is fulfilling “all the good pleasure of his goodness.” God’s plans for us are SO much higher than whatever cheapened thrills we cash them in for!
Live your testimony out loud today! Let the bigger picture fulfill your life! 🙌🏽
