A Truly Glorious Performance
He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 1:31 (NKJV)
The stylist in me loves the Red Carpet moments at the Academy Awards: the world's most beautiful designer clothes on the world's most savvy celebrities.

The music lover in me loves to hear the voices on the Grammys and Tony's. The talent jumps off the screen and pulls us into their glorious performances.

Here's the big question: WHO's the performer? 'For this thing is too much for you; you are not able to perform it by yourself' (Exodus 18:18).

If Jesus said, 'I can do nothing on My Own' (John 5:30), what do we think we can on our own?

Actors, models and talent for Christ can set the record straight about glory.

You're commissioned to tell and spread the truth, 'For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth' (2 Corinthians 13:8).

' 'Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom. Let not the mighty man glory in his might. Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; But let him who glories glory in this: That he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight,' says the Lord' (Jeremiah 9:23-24).

As your fans stand and cheer for you, look up. Let your audience know every truly glorious performance comes from The Top.

God owns it. No one else can say, I AM.

## A Truly Glorious Performance

NOTE: This is a 2021 update of a 2011 Carey Lewis Devotion. You may see notes to 'Actors, Models & Talent for Christ.' If you think you're not in show business, think again. Shakespeare said, 'All the world's a stage and all its men and women merely players. Mostly true. But you're not merely players. You are messengers and ambassadors for the King of kings.

P.S. To read the other devotions in this series, please see the A Truly Glorious Performance series.

"I labored, yet not I. By the grace of God, I am what I am, and do what I do' (paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 15:10). I love God's Word. As a late-in-life committed Christian with no Bible training prior to age 51, some people wonder how I'm qualified to write devotions. I wonder that, too. But God loves children and fools for Him. I am both. Ghost Writer? God.
