Topic: Glorifying God
1 Peter 4:11 – “If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”
MFM Daily Devotional Sunday 14th February 2021 Outline
A supreme duty of man is to glorify God. As a believer and child of the kingdom, you must ensure that every area of your life conforms to the will of God and brings glory to Him. The Psalmist enjoins believers to “give unto the LORD glory and strength as well as the glory due unto his name and to worship Him in the beauty of holiness” (Psalm 29:1-2).
How do you glorify God in your daily life? First, when you sing praise and worship songs to God, you bring glory to Him. In Psalm 22:23, the Bible says, “Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.” Praise and worship will also help you to stay connected to God. The second way you can glorify God in your daily life is by doing God’s work (serving God and others, sharing the gospel, etc). Matthew 5:16 says, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
Also, when you bear fruit in the Kingdom of God, you bring glory and honour to God. The Bible afﬁrms this in John 15:8, “Herein is my Father gloriﬁed, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.” You are fruitful in the Lord when you are useful and productive in His work. Furthermore, you can bring glory to God by promoting spiritual unity or oneness. That is why the Bible provides this admonition, “Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you” (2 Cor. 13:11).
Similarly, you can glorify God by your entire consecration. When you make yourself holy, dedicated and set apart unto God and His service, you become wholly consecrated to Him. 1 Cor. 6:20 says, “For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
Finally, you glorify God when you fulﬁll His purpose for your life. Apostle Paul said that he had fought the good ﬁght, ﬁnished his course, kept the faith and a crown of righteousness awaits him (2 Tim. 4:7-8).
Beloved, everything about you should glorify God: your ministry, marriage, career, business, ﬁnances, and so on. That is the expectation of heaven concerning you. God will not share His glory with anyone. Receive the grace to honour Him with your life and all that concerns you!
God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him.
Today, anything working to destroy God’s glory in your life shall catch fire, in the name of Jesus.
Immortal, invisible, God only wise
1. Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
Most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Thy great name we praise.
2. Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
Nor wanting, nor wasting, Thou rulest in might;
Thy justice, like mountains, high soaring above
Thy clouds, which are fountains of goodness and love.
3. To all, life Thou givest to both great and small,
In all life Thou livest the true life of all;
We blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree,
And wither and perish but naught
