HOW DO RELATIONSHIPS LINK TO GOD’S GLORY?

1 Corinthians 10:23-33

 

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 1 Cor. 10:31

 

Ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness. Psa. 29:1-2

 

Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; 1 Chron. 16:29

 

You were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. 1 Cor. 6:20

 

“I will show the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, the name you have profaned among them. Then the nations will know that I am the Lord”, declares the Sovereign Lord, Ezek. 36:23

 

Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor. James 4:10 (NLT)

 

  • I glorify God when I glorify Him in my relationships.

 

1. Contribute to their spiritual maturity.

“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive. 1 Cor. 10:23

 

Acts 20:32

1 Cor. 14:3-4

1 Cor. 8:1

Eph. 4:12

 

2. Give something up for their sake.

No one should seek their own good, but the good of others. 1 Cor. 10:24

 

3. Don’t make an issue out of something that’s not an issue.

Eat anything sold in the meat market without raising questions of conscience, for, “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.” If an unbeliever invites you to a meal and you want to go, eat whatever is put before you without raising questions of conscience. 1 Cor. 10:25-27

 

4. Live both in the freedom of Christ and in consideration of others.

(But suppose someone tells you, “This meat was offered to an idol.” Don’t eat it, out of consideration for the conscience of the one who told you. It might not be a matter of conscience for you, but it is for the other person.) For why should my freedom be limited by what someone else thinks? If I can thank God for the food and enjoy it, why should I be condemned for eating it? 1 Cor. 10:28-30 (NLT)

 

5. Be responsible to do what I can for their salvation.

Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God— even as I try to please everyone in every way. For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may be saved. 1 Cor. 10:32-33

 

My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples. John 15:8 (NAS)

 

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, Rom 3:23
