Learning and Living the God-centered life

One Biblical Doctrine at a time…

The Glory of God

Class in the morning will be totally focused on the glory of God. First I plan to take us through a 4 step process in evaluating this from the Bible.

1. His Purpose

Numbers 14:21 As I live, all the earth will be filled with the Glory of God.

Habakkuk 2:14 For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, As the waters cover the sea.

Psalm 72:19 Blessed be His glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with His glory!

Romans 11:36 For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.

2. Our Problem

We don't exhibit God's Glory in our lives which is the essence of sin.

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and are (continually) falling short of the Glory of God.

3. His Provision

God has provided The Lord Jesus for our need ‑ our falling short of His Glory.

John 1:14 The Word became flesh and dwelt among us...and we beheld His Glory.

Hebrews 1:3 He is the radiance of His Glory, the exact representation of His nature.

John 17:22 And the Glory which Thou hast given to Me I have given to them.

Luke 2: 32 Simeon took Him in his arms and said, A light of Revelation to the gentiles, and the Glory of Thy people Israel.

4. Our Priority – His Glory

2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.

Ephesians 1:5-6,11-12, 14 We are to be to the Praise of His Glory

1 Corinthians 10:31 Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

1 Peter 4:11 Whoever speaks, is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Come to class in the morning with hearts prepared to hear, see and embrace Christ through the power of the Spirit to the glory of God!
