WE GLORIFY HIS NAME – Pastor Chris
Monday, November 30, 2020
Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen (Ephesians 3:21).
Oftentimes, in prayer and songs of worship, some Christians would say, “O Lord, glorify your Name in all the earth.” It sounds okay, but it puts us in a position of expecting God to glorify His Name. And that’s not His idea; we’re the ones to glorify Him. Recall the words of Jesus in John 17:4 “I have glorified thee on the earth….” This is what we’re expected to do.
Our theme verse says, “Unto him be glory in the church…,” meaning that He expects the Church to give Him glory. Your life is for the glory of God. He’s glorified as you consistently live out His Word, bearing fruits of His divine life and nature in you. As you walk in health, prosperity, and impact your world with His righteousness, greatness, beauty and wisdom; as you produce Word-based results, the Lord is glorified.
No wonder Jesus said in Matthew 5:16, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” He’s glorified by your works of righteousness. In John 17:4 that we read earlier, the latter part shows that Jesus glorified the Father by doing what the Father wanted Him to do: “I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.” This is one of the reasons you must study the Word to know what He wants, so that every day, and in every place, you glorify Him by living out His Word. Praise God!
God has glorified Himself in me; now, I carry that glory everywhere. There’s no shame in my life; I walk in glory, and my life is full of honour, splendour, greatness, beauty, favour! I walk consistently in divine health, prosperity, and impact my world with His glory. Praise God!
