    I Thank U Lord For This Comment To follow the Lord without the Holy Spirit is impossible, there for we must go to church and worship him and be fill with the Holy Spirit. Then we can do all things in the Glory of God. Glory be to Jesus. Whatever I do : I must be sure that it will give Glory to my God. I am to follow the example that Jesus left me to walk so as to please my Father and that He may be able to say unto me : Well done thou good and faithful servant. Jesus did all things for God 's glory, never forgetting that he represented and reflected the God whom He loved. We too want to imitate Jesus example. It doesn t matter what you are doing whether eating drinking or doing anything else but make sure you are doing it to the Glory of God

    In 1 Corinthians 10:31, Paul says that whatever we do for this body, its fruit would be limited i.e. only until we live i this world. But, when we do it for the Glory of God, it gives fruit not only for this life, but also the greatest gift which is unlimited when we enter into the eternal life.
