There are many days of late when I find myself asking, “What did I do today to glorify God?” I often don’t like the answers.
Over the past 10 months, I’ve certainly grown closer to God. My readings during my recovery have been focused on New York Times Bestsellers. I probably should have been reading as much or more from the Bible itself.
I’ve been talking the past month with two men who are seeking to use technology in new ways to reach those needing to hear the Word of God. As followers of Christ, I think we should all endeavor more to do this. But….
It’s the “but” part, right?
We are all stuck in our ruts, in our daily lives, our ways of doing things, work, significant others, children maybe, and on and on and on.
I’m trying to get unstuck. I think I was using that term even before I jacked up by a then-unlicensed chiropractor.
But more so today, I find myself asking, what can I be doing to glorify God?
Through my injury, I’ve come to see the value of home visits from church friends. I don’t know what I’d do without my church’s streamed videos on Sundays. These two things have been my lifeline to God. I’ve been reading the Bible, too, but not nearly to the levels I see when I’m on YouVersion and friends from church have finished this number of day lessons in reading the whole Bible, and I have not.
I’m trying to turn my life around and be more Christ-like. That’s not easy for most of us. Look at the rich man in the Bible whom Jesus told to “go sell all you have and come follow me.” I’m probably in a better spot to do that than that rich guy, but maybe not.
I sure would like to be.
