Many people spend their lives searching for their purpose and the meaning of life. They look to self-help books and celebrities. They look to the wisdom of family and friends. Some Christians prefer to look to Christian books and authors and others look to the Lord, His wisdom, and the Bible. Our purpose is to be known by God, know Him fully, and make His name known.
If you have been saved by Christ, then why wouldn’t you want to shout it from the rooftops? Why wouldn’t you want everyone else to know the promise that you know? He has given you life, and now he wants you to share it with the world. 2 Corinthians 4:5 says, “You see, we don’t go around preaching about ourselves. We preach that Jesus Christ is Lord, and we ourselves are your servants for Jesus’ sake.” There is nothing that we can preach about ourselves, but yet we continuously want praise for the things we do. We glorify ourselves and sometimes, we don’t even realize it. However, if we can humble ourselves, then we will be able to lift Christ up. We can only become servants when we seek to glorify Him above all else.
Have you placed more priority on yourself or on your relationship with the Lord? Do you truly want to honor him? Do you want to see the people you love spend eternity with God the father? Then preach the good news about Jesus Christ instead of focusing on yourself and you will begin to see your perspective change as well as the lives of those around you.
