“He has done all things well!”
What a powerful statement! Talk about the ultimate Twitter profile… Son of God. Savior of the World. King of kings. Lord of lords. He does all things well!
That’s what the people of Tyre and Sidon said about Jesus. What do others say about me?
And they were astonished, saying, “He has done all things well. He makes even the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.” Mark 7:37
And there came to Him great crowds, having with them lame, blind, maimed, dumb, and many different ones, and they cast them beside the feet of Jesus, and He healed them, so that the crowds wondered, seeing the dumb speaking, maimed whole, lame walking, and blind seeing. And they glorified the God of Israel. Matthew 15:30-31
Jesus didn’t live for the applause of men. He honored His Father. But others will notice when, by honoring the Father, we do all things well.
It’s important to see here that, though they recognized Jesus as “doing all things well,” they “glorified the God of Israel!”
Jesus taught, “you are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden… let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14,16
“A city on a hill.” That sounds like a platform, a place to get noticed from. Our life, our deeds, our words do build a platform. But whose platform? Who is to be noticed?
I want people to look at the life I live as a follower of Christ, one who attempts to “walk as Jesus walked,” and say of me, “he does all things well.” In so doing, may my life become a platform for the message of the Gospel and the glory of God!
