Galatians 1:24 (KJV) 24 And they glorified God in me.
As His children, we’re given a high honor and privilege of being channels of God’s glory.
Not all we do bring glory to our God. Through us, God can either be praised or cursed.
We can have better chances of channeling peoples praise towards God if we’re not involved in works of darkness. It is when we let our light shine before others that they’re able to see God in us—how good and great He is. That’s how those in darkness are drawn to the Light.
God is Holy, loving, mighty. We’re not necessarily the same. It’s when those are seen in us that people see the reality that’s not us—a reality that’s attractive and magnetic, a reality that’s bigger than us, a reality that sincerely-seeking people want to be a part of.
God is essentially glorious. He isn’t always given His du—often because others aren’t just conscientious or aware. We as people in whom He dwells can bring the truth of God’s glory closer and clearer to the people.
Our lives shine; there’s no life more beautiful and radiant than that which glows with God’s beauty.
We know our worth in Him, that’s why we don’t desire glory to ourselves. We’re the pointers not the destination of praise.
