What a question!

I was reading through Philippians in preparation for tonight's Bible study and next week's message and I was confronted with this question:
Am I giving people ample cause to glory in Christ Jesus?
Paul answered that question humbly, but confidently in Philippians 1:26. He affirmed that he was doing that so that in him, the church at Philippi would have adequate reasons to boast in Jesus Christ. What a challenge!

Although we live for God, not just to impress people, a fundamental role in our life on this earth is to live in such a way that we give people a great cause to worship and celebrate Jesus.

God help OBC to do that.
