This week’s Pastor to Person was written by Pastor Daniel Grant.
Something that never ceases to amaze me about the life of Jesus in the Scriptures is the focuses on ‘Others.’ We see this time and again. Jesus thought of others. Jesus blessed and spent time with people that the World had cast out. The focus of the Christian life is not on self, on what I can get from every situation and every relationship, but centers around what I can give, and how I can serve. 1 Corinthians 10:24 “Don’t be concerned for your own good but for the good of others.”
I love that Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit adds two more thoughts here in 1 Corinthians 10:31 “So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” In all things we need to seek to glorify our Father in Heaven. Even the mundane and ordinary tasks can be done to give HIM glory! Then Paul says in 32b “I don’t just do what is best for me; I do what is best for others so that many may be saved.” Paul lived his life to bring others into the kingdom, and so we too need to do. We need to look to what is best for others, not just ourselves, we need to do all things with the heavenly mindset and carefully point people to Jesus!!
