Are We Growing in Glorifying God?

“I have glorified You on the earth, I have finished the work which You have given Me to do.” John 17:4-26.

Jesus’ used the word “glory” in these verses in a way not common to us. Jesus in describing the glory of His glorifying of God (doxazo; Greek), He means to make known; to make or leave a favorable impression or opinion. Jesus’ life clearly did that. He glorified the Father, displaying on Earth the splendor of a wondrously favorable impression of the Father.

 When people saw Jesus, they saw the Father (John 14:9) most importantly; Jesus explains how He glorified God. He “finished the work” the Father gave Him to do.

To glorify God, then is to complete an assignment—to do those things He has called, chosen, appointed, and anointed us to do. Are we growing in our glorifying of God?

    This is a good question. I think the Christian reevaluates his/her relationship with God from time to time. Are we growing in glorifying God? It is a good question.

      I agree. It is very important especially since we could be gone in a moment. We need to reflect His glory. i need a constant reminder.
