5 Distinct Ways to GLORIFY GOD.











The Big question we need to ask is, how do we glorify God in our daily lives? you might think it's very difficult to do but I can assure you it's very simple.

"When anything in creation fulfills its purpose, it brings glory to God".


Jesus told the Father, John 17:4 "I brought glory to you here on earth by doing everything you told me to do.' I' Jesus honored God by fulfilling his purpose on earth. We honor God the same way. When anything in creation fulfills its purpose, it brings glory to God. Birds bring glory to God by flying, nesting, and doing other bird-like activities that God intended. Even the lowly ant brings glory to God when it fulfills the purpose it was created for. God made ants to be ants, and he made you to be you.



There are many ways to bring glory to God, but they can be summarized in God's five purposes for your life.

We bring God glory by worshiping him. (Worship) Worship is our first responsibility to God. We worship God by enjoying him. C. S. Lewis said, "In commanding us to glorify him, God is inviting us to enjoy him." God wants our worship to be motivated by love, thanksgiving, and delight, not duty.
John Piper notes, "God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him."
Worship is far more than praising, singing, and praying to God. Worship is a lifestyle of enjoying God, loving him, and giving ourselves to be used for his purposes. When you use your life for God's glory, everything you do can become an act of worship. The Bible says, Romans 6:13 "Use your whole body as a tool to do what is right for the glory of God.”


We bring God glory by loving other believers (fellowship).
 When you were born again, you became a part of God's family. Following Christ is not just a matter of believing; it also includes belonging and learning to love the family of God. John wrote, 1 John 3:14"Our love for each other proves that we have gone from death to life."' Paul said, Romans 15:7" Accept each other just as Christ has accepted you; then God will be glorified."
It is your responsibility to learn how to love as God does, because God is love, and it honors him. Jesus said, in john 13:34  "As I have loved you, so you must love one another: By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."


We bring God glory by becoming like Christ (discipleship). Once we are born into God's family, he wants us to grow to spiritual maturity. What does that look like? Spiritual maturity is becoming like Jesus in the way we think, feel, and act. The more you develop Christ like character, the more you will bring glory to God. The Bible says in 2 cor 3:18 "As the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like him and reflect his glory even more."
God gave you a new life and a new nature when you accepted Christ. Now, for the rest of your life on earth, God wants to continue the process of changing your character. The Bible says in Phillipeans 1:11 "May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation-those good things that are produced in your life by Jesus Christ for this will bring much glory and praise to God."


We bring God glory by serving others with our gifts (service). Each of us was uniquely designed by God with talents, gifts, skills, and abilities. The way you're "wired" is not an accident. God didn't give you your abilities for selfish purposes. They were given to benefit others, just as others were given abilities for your benefit. The Bible says in 1 Peter 4:10 "God has given gifts to each of you from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Manage them well so that God's generosity can flow through you.... Are you called to help others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then God will be given glory.”


We bring God glory by telling others about him (evangelism). God doesn't want his love and purposes kept a secret. Once we know the truth, he expects us to share it with others. This is a great privilege-introducing others to Jesus, helping them discover their purpose, and preparing them for their eternal destiny. The Bible says in 2 cor 4:15 "As God's grace brings more and more people to Christ, God will receive more and more glory."
