Magnify the Magnificent!

1 Corinthians 10:23-33

The emphasis in 1 Corinthians 10:31 is not on what we do or don’t do. The “whatever you do” makes that very clear. The emphasis is on why we do what we do.

The problem is over the years those words have fallen into the category of “churchese”–words we say around the church, but they have lost their meaning and power. To do something for the glory of God should be a powerful motivator. It simply means to magnify who God is so it’s easier for others to see God and all of His magnificence. Much the way a magnifying glass makes it easier to see the words. Paul is saying that our actions, our responses to difficulties, and to challenging people should make it easier for people to see God and what He is really like. They should be able to see His grace, His holiness, and His love through our actions.

Instead of thinking about us, people would think of Jesus and what He’s doing in us. That magnifies Him; that brings glory to Him.
