John 7:16-18

Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.  He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

Christ taught God’s doctrine. Today we teach the same doctrine. It is not for our benefit that we tell the world about Christ, but for the glory of God. Those that teach for their own glory will get their reward and it will not be pleasant. Now the question is do you want to glorify God or man.

Ephesians 6:7-8

With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.

We should do good in our lives. We should strive to show the love of Christ that is in our heart to others by our actions. We should also strive to do a good job in everything that we do, not for the pleasers of man, but for the glory of God.
