Have you ever wondered why God made everything?
Why he allows some things to happen, and other things to not happen?
The answer in the Bible is for God’s glory: for from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen. (Romans 11:36)
The Reformers were driven by the glory of God. Their protests of faith alone, grace alone, Bible alone, and Christ alone were so that God alone receives the glory.
By nature, we are glory thieves. We try to take the spotlight from God and give ourselves glory. This is a tragedy when we remember that everything was made for God’s glory.
It’s a tragedy as we are most human and most satisfied when we bring glory to God – afterall, it’s what we were made for!
Can I encourage you this week to pause before speaking and making decisions to consider: how can I bring glory to God in this moment?
In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
