Pray for us, for we are sure that we have a good conscience, desiring to conduct ourselves honorably in all things.
Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name.
"And whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
Process as Goal
From Oswald Chambers
We tend to think that if Jesus Christ compels us to do something and we are obedient to Him, He will lead us to great success. We should never have the thought that our dreams of success are God’s purpose for us. In fact, His purpose may be exactly the opposite. We have the idea that God is leading us toward a particular end or a desired goal, but He is not. The question of whether or not we arrive at a particular goal is of little importance, and reaching it becomes merely an episode along the way. What we see as only the process of reaching a particular end, God sees as the goal itself.
ASk God today that we would seek to glorify Him in the planning of GBC as much as the execution.
