“I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do.” (John 17:4)
Jesus honored God by fulfilling His purpose on earth. You can honor God in the same way. When anything in creation fulfills its purpose, it brings Glory to God. Even the lowly ant brings glory to God when it fulfills the purpose it was created for. But God made ants to be ants and He made you to be you! There are a lot of things that can bring glory to God, and here are just some of it that might help you to do what pleases HIM who created you.
You can bring Glory to God by Loving Him.
Loving God is the first of all the commandment, you heard that it was said in the scripture,”Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment.” (Matthew 22:37-38,NKJV). You are created to love the One who gave His all to you. God created you to love, to love Him and to love the people who surround you. You need to let God teach you what love really is, for He Himself is LOVE.
You can bring Glory to God by worshiping Him.
“God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24)
Worship is far more than praising, singing, and praying to God. Worship is a lifestyle of connecting yourself to God and enjoying His company, loving Him, and giving yourselves to be used for His purpose. When you use your life for God’s glory, everything you do can be an act of worship. You must worship God in spirit and in truth. God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.
You can bring Glory to God by becoming like Christ.
“And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” (2 Corinthians 3:18)
Once you are born into God’s family, He wants us to grow to spiritual maturity. Spiritual maturity is becoming like Jesus in the way we think, feel and act. The more you develop a Christ like character, the more it will bring glory to God.
You can bring glory to God by telling others about Him.
“And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”
Once we know the truth, He expects us to share it with others. This is a great privileged—introducing others to Jesus, helping them discover their purpose, and preparing them for their eternal destiny. This is your great commission as a Christian and a follower of Christ. This brings glory to God.
Living the rest of your life for the glory of God will require a change in your priorities, your schedule, and your relationship. It requires your full surrender to God and letting Him do His will for your life on earth as it is in heaven. Will you live for your own goals, comfort and pleasure, or will you live the rest of your life for God’s glory? When loving God is your first priority in life, then living to glorify Him for the rest of your life will be as easy as anyone can.
