Do we really desire to glorify God?

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

To glorify God the Father on earth was Jesus’ express purpose. To prepare for and live in revival, it is vitally important especially in the darkness of our present surrounding’s to possess this same desire to glorify God. He will not share His glory with another (Isa.42:8); but to and through those who are consumed with a passion to know God and give all the glory to Him, He will manifest the glory of His Person, His Power, and His presence.

Glorifying God is the Holy Spirit’s intent in revival (John 16:14).

Growth in glorifying God.

Jesus’ use of “glory” goes beyond the word’s use as commonly expressed. Describing the glory of His glorifying of God (Greek doxazo), Jesus 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 humankind Jesus, we 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 you ready to glorify God the Father in Jesus today?

    It’s a great question, Manny, and one all Christians should ask themselves.

    He has, indeed, finished the work. Now, as you have noted, we must finish our assignments. May God give us the strength, wisdom, and grace to do so.

    Thanks for the powerful nugget….
