the glory of God

So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.

The glory of God is a big deal as it is something that the more we know of God and the more we seek Him the more we see and experience His glory.  We can see it in almost any direction we look.  That is, if we are looking.

The greatest place to see His glory is in the thing God loves the most.  That would be in His people.  His favorite thing and creation would be us.  It is only thing that He redeemed.  Jesus came for people.  He loves us and desires to reveal His glory often.

One of the things I cannot get enough of is seeing people grow closer to God and enjoy His presence.  His glory will grow more and more as we grow.  You have known someone who was far from God, and at some point and with some happening that person changed.  The change was due to the grace of God that brought glory to God.

You most likely have experienced some things that I have.  Nature is an incredible thing.  The mountains declare it.  The oceans sing His glory.  Over and over people have gotten closer to God as they experienced Him.

Psalm 19:1  NLT
The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship.

By our actions and our kindness and our sharing the glory of God grows.  Much like the verse I began with.  Jesus was the example of, radiance of and the revealing of God’s glory.

We have seen Him.  When we bring attention to God, we bring Him glory.  Enjoy His glory and share His glory with others!

John 15:8  NLT
When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father.
