How can I glorify God?

“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.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
