So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31, ESV
We are to make distinctions of all that passes by us. Making the decisions based on value and content and worth is the correct way to go about deciding what is worthwhile. The radiance and brilliance are not our way of sounding poetic about something. It is the real core of essential nature. It’s like watching a doctor perform a biopsy. They extract a tiny speck of organ tissue with a long needle. A biopsy will give the physician a real understanding of what is really happening inside.
The Bible tells us ‘taste and see, that God is good’ [tasty]. This is what real faith does, it reaches out and takes a sample. Often in a big grocery store the management sets up a card table. A person attends the table, and offers passing customers samples. Of course, they do this so you will buy this new product. (Sausage and cheese samples are my favorites. I generally try to avoid the cole slaw, as a general rule).
I guess God made us humans with an adventurous and inquisitive nature. We climb mountains, and eat Korean food. We have this built in curiosity that leaks out all over the place. Some really need a taste of danger, or to be creative, or competitive. The point is this– we are created in God’s image. And only God is majestic enough, and big enough– to be enough.
We are learning that all our activity, and all our passion is to contribute and build His Glory. In order to do this we need to amputate our passivity and stretch out to a muscular faith. Flabby and flaccid discipleship won’t be able to give God any real glory, or give us any real joy. We were designed and built specifically to give God immense glory. There is nothing better to do with our lives.
