God’s agenda will terminate the cravings of the flesh, so that the weight of His glory can be revealed.

This profound statement encapsulates the essence of a transformative journey where God’s purpose triumphs over our human inclinations. In this journey, our fleshly desires and selfish ambitions are subdued to make way for the magnificent revelation of God’s glory in our lives.

Crucifying the Flesh

Galatians 5:24 (NIV) states, “Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.” This verse highlights the necessity of putting to death our carnal inclinations. Our natural tendencies often drive us towards selfishness, pride, and sinful desires, all of which hinder the manifestation of God’s glory.

When we align ourselves with God’s agenda, we embark on a process of sanctification. This involves daily surrendering our fleshly cravings and allowing the Holy Spirit to transform our hearts and minds. Romans 12:2 (NIV) encourages us, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

Revealing God’s Glory

As we submit to God’s agenda, His glory becomes increasingly evident in our lives. 2 Corinthians 3:18 (NIV) beautifully describes this transformation: “And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”

The process of sanctification allows the Holy Spirit to refine us, shedding away the layers of self and sin that obscure the divine image within us. The more we yield to God’s transformative work, the more His glory shines through us, revealing His presence, power, and love to the world.

Living for God’s Glory

To truly reflect God’s glory, we must prioritize His agenda over our own. This means making decisions that honor Him, pursuing His righteousness, and seeking His kingdom first (Matthew 6:33, NIV). It involves a radical shift from living for ourselves to living for Christ, allowing His will to take precedence in every aspect of our lives.

Philippians 2:13 (NIV) assures us, “For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.” God’s agenda in our lives is not just about suppressing our desires but about empowering us to live out His divine purpose with joy and fulfillment. As we align ourselves with His will, we experience the fullness of life that He promises.


Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your transformative power at work within us. Help us to surrender our fleshly desires and selfish ambitions, allowing Your Holy Spirit to refine and renew us.

May Your agenda take precedence in our lives, and may we be vessels that reveal the weight of Your glory to the world. Transform our hearts and minds so that we reflect Your love, grace, and power in everything we do.

Guide us to live lives that honor and glorify You, seeking first Your kingdom and righteousness. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
