1 Corinthians 10:25-11:1
We come today to the final text in Paul’s great sermon on Christian liberty. In our text, Paul shows that there are greater and lesser principles at play which govern our behavior as Christians- and the greatest of great principles is simply this: do all to the glory of God.
What does it mean to glorify God? Simply stated, to glorify God means to reflect to the world the glory that comes from God. That is, by God’s grace, to reveal the perfections of God’s character- his purity, his power, his holiness, his wisdom, his grace, his patience, his justice, his forgiveness, his mercy, to the world so they see them accurately represented, and ultimately back to God. Paul explains how to do this in our text today.
