1 Corinthians 10:31 (NKJV) – Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

Back in the 17th century, there was this monk that became known for how he carried the presence of God. You know how he did it? By washing dishes. He learned how to do everything, even the most menial, everyday task, to the glory of God.

Declaration: I will honor the Lord with my thoughts, with my words, and with my actions. I will let my light shine before men, that they may see my good works and glorify my Father in heaven. In Jesus’ name, Amen!


The apostle Paul knew about this. Not only did he write about it in 1 Corinthians 10:31, but he practiced it as well. He was a tent maker back in the day, and because tent building was hard work, he would wear an apron and use a sweat rag. When people were in need of an encounter with the Lord, and Paul couldn’t make it to them, they were able to be healed and delilvered if they were touched by those very same handkerchiefs or aprons! Why? Because Paul knew how to glorify God in all things.


When we glorify the Lord in the day-to-day events, we make space for Him to invade those places. It’s an invitation to Him to be a part of whatever it is we’re doing. When we know He’s with us, we can’t help but operate in a manner that pleases and honors Him. So our everyday lives can become a continuous display of the goodness of God.


People can’t help but be transformed by coming into contact with the Spirit of the Living God. A life that glorifies the Lord, is a life that transforms the lives of others that encounter it. This is for us! Look at what Jesus says in the gospel of Matthew:


“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

– Matthew 5:14-16 NKJV


So get intentional, friends! Get intentional about inviting the Lord into your work, into your commute; hey, even into your dish-washing. He is with us and when we invite Him into relationship, He always says, “Yes.”

Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, The LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah – Psalms 24:8-10 NKJV
