A few days ago we considered God’s Passion for His Glory. Now lets consider some applications of this passage.
Seek God’s Glory
If you aren’t a Christian you should be extremely interested in the Glory of God. God saw it worthy to send his own people into exile so that everyone may see him clearly. Mustn’t he be worth seeing?
Join us on this blog as we look at Christ’s glories. Get a Bible. Talk to a Christian friend. See the God whose very nature is worth that price.
Live for God’s Glory
If you’re a Christian God sees good conduct as essential to his people’s witness. We must live lives that proclaim him faithfully.
Consider your actions around unbelievers. When you laugh at that joke, talk about that friend, tell that little lie are you really showing the people around you what a great God you have?
Repent for God’s Glory
It is essential that non-Christians not only know when you get it right but also when you get it wrong.
God felt it necessary to proclaim widely the sins of his people we should too. When we get it wrong we must confess. Our sins could be doing God a great injustice.
Revelation of God’s Glory
However, we also must remember this: Christ is the true Israel. He shows the glory of the Father better than any other. He never had to repent of sin. Let’s thank God he gave us such clariy in Christ.
