but so that the world may know
that I love the Father, I do
exactly as the Father has
commanded Me. Get up
let us go from here.
(The words of Jesus as He led
His disciples from the upper room
to the Garden of Gethsemane to
I glorified You on the earth,
having accomplished the work
which You have given me to do.
(From the prayer of Jesus the Christ
in the garden of Gethsemane.)
The accomplishment of God's purposes
bring Him glory. So when His purpose
is accomplished in your life you are
a vessel that brings glory to Him.
When we pray, "Your will be done on
earth as it is in heaven," we are not
praying for His will to be done in a
vague and general way, but for His
will to be done in a very specific way,
starting with our very lives. Our submitting
to His will in our life (doing exactly as our
Father has commanded) accomplishes His
work which He has given us to do, which then
accomplishes His purposes in our life, and
the result is that He is glorified.
For we are His workmanship, created in
Jesus Christ for good works, which God
prepared beforehand so that we would
walk in them.
