For speakers and musicians who perform on stage, it is easy to want a large crowd. But no one can ever draw as big an audience into the largest hall in the world, as just a little five-year-old singing her heart out to God in her own backyard. Because God is the greatest audience a person could ever have. And he doesn’t just slouch in his chair! He loves to hear the voices of his loved ones.
“God is the greatest audience you can ever have.”
It is easy to think that we want a large following, and maybe we want the glory to go to God, but who are we truly performing to: God or people? Of course, it can be both. But I believe that we often miss the realization of, who are we performing to? We want to perform for God, but how often to we perform to him?
The audience before you is only a fraction of the size of the audience which you can’t see. God is everywhere and we have direct access to him at any minute of the day. He is truly great. God loves it when we minister to others for his glory. He lives in the brothers and sisters around us. But he also loves it when we do something directly to him . I personally love singing to my Jesus! He is the greatest, and he deserves the best that I can offer.
As we go about our normal lives, let’s truly do “each word or deed” to God. When God is in us, he promises to be with us. He lives in the Christians around us. Let’s remember to do everything as if it were to him. Would we be rude or mean or spiteful to Jesus?? God receives love directly from our heart to his. But He receives it also directly from us through how we treat other people. Let me leave you with these verses.
For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me… Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
