Living for His Glory?

 The heavens are telling of the glory of God; and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.  Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.  There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard.  Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their utterances to the end of the world…
Psalm 19:1-4b

So if the heavens are telling of the glory of  God, should not we?  Man, as the apex of God’s creation, man as the one created in the image of God, should be the one aspect of His creation that brings Him the greatest glory, and praises Him in the greatest way.

I Corinthians 10:31 Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

The whole world is a theater for the glory of God, and your life is one of its many stages.
A life that is not lived for the glory of God is a life that is lived for naught.  It is a life that has accomplished nothing of eternal value.  It is a life that has received its only reward here on earth.  A life lived for God and His glory is a life lived for eternity, and a life that will reap eternal rewards.  For in the final analysis, you will either live for God's glory or live for your own.
