Have you ever heard the phrase ”to bask in the glory?”
The expression means to enjoy receiving attention when one is successful. The ancient Romans used a similar phrase to mean they were very comfortable and happy.
It is currently used to refer to someone who’s important and famous. But even great football players and beautiful models who reach fame and glory will someday lose it. For human beings, glory is a temporary thing: it disappears as time goes by.
The Bible says true glory comes from God and is eternal.
Have you ever seen the glory of God? Everything God created shows His glory: the stars, the universe, the human body, living creatures …
If you get the chance to look at a cell through a microscope, you’ll be able to see how amazing our Creator is.
We can also get to know God’s glory through the life of Jesus. He came to Earth so we could get to know about God, His character, His power, His love to save us … Jesus reflects God’s glory.
Did you know you can also reflect God’s glory? Yes, you can live to praise Him, and give Him honor and glory. That’s what it means to glorify, or give glory, to God.
Maybe you’re wondering how you can glorify God. Proclaim that He is your Creator and Savior, love Him with all your heart, tell others about Him, use the talents He has given you to help others, take care of your body by eating and drinking healthful things …
What else can you do to honor and give glory to God? Write it down in your Prayer Journal.
