GOD’S GLORY IS THE THEME OF THE BIBLE
Life is not to be about us, but Him.
Life is not to be measured by our metric, but His.
Here are some clarifying verses in God’s Word the Bible:
Psalm 115:1 (NKJV) Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, But to Your name give glory, Because of Your mercy, Because of Your truth.
Romans 11:36 (NKJV) For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.
1 Corinthians 10:31 (NKJV) Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 15:28 (NKJV) Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all.
Philippians 2:11 (NKJV) and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Revelation 14:7 (NKJV) saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.”
Revelation 19:1 (NKJV) After these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honor and power belong to the Lord our God! Now, back to that closing doxology of the Lord’s prayer in Mat. 6:13:
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
Jesus asked us to make sure everything in our life is tied to God’s glory.
GOD’S GLORY IS OUR GOAL
The Lord declared we are sinners from birth and because of that we all want our own way (Isaiah 53:6).
Wanting our own way is a simple definition of pride.
All of us this morning shares one thing in common and that is the sin of pride.
Though most of us may never murder another human—we are proud.
Though we may never get involved in witchcraft or sodomy—we will have a lifelong involvement with pride.
No matter what else we do in your life, if humility is not our constant choice, then God will resist everything else we do.
Remember the blanket statement in James 4:6 (NKJV):
But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”
Since life is not to be about us, but Him; and since life is not to be measured by our metric, but His, here is the BIG question:
ARE YOU HUMBLE?
