Growth in Glorifying God.

“I have glorified You on the earth, I have finished the work which You have given Me to do. And now, O Father, glorify Me together alongside Yourself, with the glory which I had with you before the world was.”  John 17:4, 5 NKJV.

Growth

Jesus’ use of “glory” transcends the word’s use as commonly expressed. Describing the glory of and His glorifying of God (Greek doxazo), He means to make known; to make or leave a favorable impression or opinion.a lifetime of growth

Jesus’ life clearly did that: He glorified the Father, displaying on earth the splendor of a wondrously favorable impression of the Father. When humankind saw Jesus, we saw the Father (John 14:9). Going further, 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.
