Our priority and aim in life should be to please God.when we are willing,ready and able to obey men and not God,who is the creator of the universe and everything in it,as Psalms 24 points out to us,then our priority should be to please God. Why is it so hard for us to want to please God? When you read Ephesians 6:5-9, you would probably love the opportunity to debate about it, but God is trying to show us that if we can’t be obedient to the people who have authority over us, because of wealth or position, then how are we going to be obedient to Him who owns the persons over us and everything and everyone from earth to heaven.
If we only work hard to please our employers (or those who have authority over us) when they are watching, then are you only holy and righteous when the Pastor or another Christian is watching while behind closed doors you are a tyrant. This is what eye service and men pleasing is about. The false prophets and fake Christians who fail to realize that God never slumbers or sleep, and that He is an omnipresent and omniscient God who is everywhere, forget that He can see their thoughts, motives, and intentions. Nothing can be hidden from God.
When you wear the name or carry the title of a Christian do it in Spirit and in truth; you praise, glorify, honor and thank Him whether someone is watching or not because He is worthy of all the praise, glory, honor, and thanks. God never looks at outward appearances like men, but He looks directly into the heart as 1 Samuel 16 verse 7 tells us. Jesus said it best in Matthew 23:27-28, “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because outwardly you appear beautiful but inwardly you are dead and unclean…”
It’s time to do everything to the glory of God and stop being hypocrites — worship God in Spirit and truth. As Paul tells us, remember that whatever we do we are doing it for God so do it with enthusiasm and God will reward us. When we do our best and give a hundred percent effort it is evidence of our devotion to God.
- Whatever you do in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him. Colossians 3:17
- Whether you eat or drink, whatever you do, do all to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31). I always say, “If God doesn’t get the glory, you have no story, testimony or message.
- Colossians 3:23 And whatever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.
