A new Car? Home? Boat, Motorcycle? Ski Doo?
A new Job? A new Baby? A Big Vacation?
A close call with death? A major operation? An Accident? Death of a Loved one?

Think about it for a minute.. Then list the top ten events in your life.
Now ask yourself three questions.
- Was God involved in these events?
- Was God honored in these events?
- Was God glorified in these events?
- God involved?
Romans 14:8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.
2 Corinthians 5:15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
- God Honored?
Romans 6:12-13 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
Romans 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
- God Glorified?
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
Yes, the Lord God, Christ Jesus died for your sins and offered salvation to all who will accept it. (Romans 10:9-13). And then He wants to be involved in your life, Honored by your life, Glorified by your life. Will/Do you let Him?
