Is your fame connected to your relationship with God?

First of all, if any of us achieved fame, we have seen enough celebrities thank God on stage so poorly that we might want to gag.  We are not so sure how we go about proclaiming this fact with enough sincerity as to warrant attention to God and not hypocrisy to us.

That is probably why in the very first steps of our walk with God, we need to proclaim Him as the source of all our well-doing.  If we are proclaimed wise, we need to declare that the beginning of wisdom comes with knowing God, and when a statement is made that whatever we touch seems to turn into gold, we need to declare that when God shows favour to someone, and His favour is on that individual, then that knowledge and that wisdom they have received from Him was given so that God would be honoured and glorified.

Do you think this is difficult to do?

Let me tell you why I think it is.  When people to honour God and glorify Him for who and what we are, how many people follow you instead of God?  Why would these individuals not do what you do – waiting, praying, diligently searching the Scripture, and practising what we have learned?

Our prosperity and grandeur, such that it is should not be the focus or impression we make on people – it should be the spiritual excellence in heavenly things, and consistent in our faith journey.   Here the truth be told and all who, through grace, are brought to fellowship with God, will say the one half was not told them of the pleasures and the advantages of wisdom’s ways. Glorified saints, much more, will say of heaven, that the thousandth part was not told them.

We should not fail to mention an emotional expression as well.  Followers of Christ are happy dwelling in God’s presence, and praising His name.

So let us remember, from the very beginning to express our gratitude. For we who follow Jesus, will continue to strive on this earth to do well what we do, making sure we are always ready for the task at hand maintaining proper motives and perspectives – however, in all that, looking forward to the day when, being absent from the body, we shall be present with the Lord.
