Bringing Glory to God

Posted by  Secretary  Apr 30, 2017

It is the responsibility of every individual to determine how to glorify the Lord with their life. The Bible has much to say about God's glory, but we must understand our responsibility in this and take the steps necessary to find ourselves faithful. The following verses give a brief tutorial in this process.

" For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" Romans 3:23

First of all, we must realize that in ourselves it is impossible to bring glory to God. This next passage shows us that we have been given an opportunity to not only know God, but by knowing Him, we can then understand what it is that brings Him glory.

" He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth." John 1:10-14

The Fact is, once we know what it is that brings glory to God, we then can start to live our life with a mind-set of Godliness. Doing what the Bible teaches is the key to glorifying the Lord.  If you are unsaved, placing your faith in Christ and receiving Him as your Saviour brings glory to God. After becoming His child, you start to grow in His word and learn more of His desire for your life.

" What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's."
I Corinthians 6:19-20

May the Lord help us to understand and embrace a life that glorifies God.
