Do it all for the glory of God ...

The word "apostle" is from the Greek apostolos, messenger -- designating one sent with a message. Paul is an apostle of Jesus Christ and his letters to churches and individuals became many books of the New Testament.

Paul, apostle of Jesus Christ, says: "...whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God".

Paul's holy God created all things, originated all life, and is our only rightful Ruler. By fiat He created the first man from whom all people are descended. He "commands all people everywhere" to turn to Him and recognize His rights as Creator and rightful Ruler of all. "For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to all men by raising him from the dead."

Paul's example was to do all to God's glory seeking "the good of many, so that they may be saved".

This blog is dedicated to the glory of God, hoping to turn people to Him, dispose them to give Him his due, and enable them to stand before Him blameless and joyful on their day of judgment!

By the grace of God I hope to share what I've been given to the glory of our heavenly Father -- Creator and rightful Ruler of mankind through Jesus Christ!
