Glory to God
That is the name of the sermon that my Pastor gave this morning and it was a very needed word. All to often we worry about what Pastor say’s this and what movement teaches that. Instead of worrying about which one of them is following God and teaching what is the right way, it is important to make sure that it is not themselves that they are promoting. If they are giving the glory to God and what they teaches is not against what the Bible says, then does it make any real difference what they call themselves?
Pastor pointed out so many of the old jingles and commercials that get your attention and make you listen. You never see the name of the company or person who wrote it applied to the product, they are there to promote the product and not themselves. That is what we should be doing! Promoting God’s word and not haggling over who does the best job or who does it the correct way. After all it isn’t important who does what, it is important if people hear about the product and want to know more.
If we spend ourselves on God, He will get the glory and that is all that counts in the end. Everything else is just fluff that will get washed out in the rain of Jesus return. And if we spend too much time worrying about correctness, like the Pharisees, we will be trying to make things fit how we want instead of how He wants.
