HOW TO GLORIFY GOD Today we are going to look at 13 practical ways we can glorify God. (Psa. 29:2a) We glorify God when we confess Jesus as Lord. (Phil. 2:9-11) Confessing Jesus Christ as Lord is the first thing we do if we are going to glorify God. (Matt. 10:32-33; Rom. 10:9-10) If Jesus is not our Lord and Savior, we cannot glorify God. (John 5:23; 13:31) We glorify God when we trust God with unwavering faith. (Rom. 4:20 In fact, without faith we will be unable to please Him. (Heb. 11:6) If we don’t trust Him, if our faith is lacking, if we fail to believe what God says in His Word, then we essentially make Him out to be a liar. (1 John 5:10) We glorify God when we praise God. (Psa. 50:23a; Psa. 86:12) We glorify God when we thank God. (2 Cor. 4:15; 1 Thes. 5:18) Praise and thanksgiving should be a significant part of the believer’s life.God has done so much for us, all of which we do not deserve; so that we should be constantly praising Him and thanking Him for His graciousness towards us. (Psa. 100:4) Even when we go through trials, testings, and tribulations, we have no reason to be ungrateful to God. We glorify God when we ask God for something in prayer that is in accordance with His will. (John 14:13) The ultimate purpose why God answers our prayers is so that He will be glorified. By praying to God, we are admitting our complete dependence on Him to supply every need, so He gets the glory. (Phil. 4:19-20) By praying to God, we give ourselves and others reasons to praise God because of answered prayer. (Psa. 66:19-20) We glorify God when we confess our sins and repent from our sinful ways. (Josh. 7:19; Rev.16:9) The word “confession” means to say the same thing. When we confess our sins, we agree with God about our sins. (1 John 1:9-10) Failure to take responsibility for our own sin ultimately means that we place the blame for our sin on God; but if we confess our sin, we acknowledge that we are responsible. We glorify God when we bear fruit. Jesus said that good fruit is the mark of the believer. (Matt. 7:17-20)We glorify God when we proclaim the Word of God. (Acts 11:18; 13:48;We glorify God when we suffer for Christ. (1 Pet. 4:16) We glorify God when we give with generosity. (2 Cor. 9:6-8 & 11-13) We glorify God when we preserve unity in the church. (Rom.15:5-7) We glorify God when we use our spiritual gifts. (1 Pet. 4:10-11) So how will you all Glorify God this week?
