Who do you live your life for? Christ? Yourself?

What has my life been like all this week? 
I have had my orientation at MPC. I called my girlfriend up to wish her a happy 20th birthday. 
But in the midst of all this stuff, I need to stop and think: what was my part in the kingdom? What role did I play being Jesus' bride? Yes, my blog address me as his bride but the reality is if I don't act like it, who will remember who I was or who God was through me when I leve this planet? 
That is my ultimate question to you: at the end of your day who do you want to be remembered as? Who gets the glory, you or God? Think about that as you ponder my words of how important it is to live your life for Christ's sake. Please feel absolutely free to comment and leave questions so I can answer them. God bless everyone!

Just living the life

Today's reading struck me down. As we all know, living a life for Christ's sake is important but it is as equally important that we build our Lord's house heart fully. Take a look. 

 We may have the biggest dream and passion to buy the most beautiful home for our family oneday, but what if this dream never materialises? Would we still worship and serve God with all our hearts? Our Father wants us to set goals and have dreams for our future, but not at the expense of destroying our relationship with God.

Just because things do not turn out the way we expect, does not give us the right to get angry and bitter at God. Today's words of encouragement are about aiming high and dreaming the biggest dreams of all dreams, while appreciating the challenges and tests of life God allows.

Our dreams, desires, and response to the tests of life affect the house we are to build for our Lord. God is the one who builds the house; let us not forget this key verse (Psalm 127:1). However, if our dreams and passions do not align to God's will for our lives,are we not building the Lord's house in vain? If we respond poorly to the Lord's tests, then are not our foundations poor in the eyes of God?

At this point, let us check our hearts to see if our dreams are aligned to God's will or our selfish desires. Furthermore, how have we responded to the tests our Lord allows? We may haveall the money and power in the world to purchase the most beautiful and the grandest of all homes, but if the Lord does not dwell in it,He might be sending us a very clear message. Are we ready to listen?

Psalm 40:8 I DESIRE to do YOUR WILL, my GOD; Your law is within my heart.

I mean wow!
