Giving God The Glory—Selected Texts
As Christians, we know from the Bible that God wants us to give him the glory and no one or nothing else. In Isaiah, we read,
9 For my name’s sake will I defer mine anger, And for my praise will I refrain for thee, That I cut thee not off. 10 Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction. 11 For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: For how should my name be polluted? And I will not give my glory unto another. (Isaiah 48:9–11)
We who have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ want to glorify God in our lives. Of course, we should avoid worshiping modern-day idols like money, entertainment, drugs and so forth, but glorifying God is more than not doing certain things. There are also positive things that we should be doing—and those are what we’ll be looking at in this lesson. We’ll look at seven ways (and there are more) that we can glorify God.
