I’m challenged by Selwyn’s statement, “Our Lord lived entirely and exclusively for the Father’s glory – and so must we.”, as all too often I get caught up in the stuff I would like God to do for me.
It’s the constant demands that we place on ourselves such that we are consumed, both in terms of time and energy, in asking God to address these demands. I think it’s the nature of the society that we live in.
Selwyn’s prayer for today, “Father help me understand that in glorifying You I do not impoverish myself.”, really hits the mark – do you agree?
I also like John’s verses 15:8-10 “My Father’s glory is shown by your bearing a lot of fruit; and in this way you become my disciples. I love you just as the Father loves me; remain in my love. If you obey my commands you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in his love.” (Good News Bible)
