For His Glory

Have you ever looked at nature?  Really looked at it?

What is it saying to you in that moment?

Have you stood on the shores of the ocean and admired it’s power and vastness?

Have you ever stood and watched the incredible power of Niagara Falls?

The destructive, yet creative power, of a volcano such as Mauna Loa?

Have you ever admired the incredible array of colors in a coral reef that is teeming with life of every kind?

The world around us proclaims the glory of God at all times.  It is found in the whisper of a hummingbird’s wings, the rustle of wind through crisp spring leaves, or the softening of the world under a blanket of freshly fallen snow.  It is found in the roaring crash of the tides against a shoreline and the cry of the eagles high in the sky.  It is apparent the beauty of a summer sunset as the entire sky is painted red, pink, orange, and purple.  It is heard in the song sung by a child as they play and expressed in each hug and kiss they give.  It is evident in the sparkle in their eye when they see something new and amazing.  They are basking in His glory.

John Calvin called creation the theater of the glory of God.

You know what’s even more amazing though?  You, as a likeness of God Himself, can partake in this glory.  You can help create it.  Glory, from Christ, abounds in the human heart and we are capable of amazing things.  So the next time that you lean over to hug your toddler or accept a kiss from your son or daughter, remember that is in expression of love, of glory, of the majesty of creation expressed through human action.

The next time you witness something incredible in nature, understand that you are witnessing God’s glory poured out on creation and reflecting not only for us to see and witness, but also for us to admire and praise Him.

The created universe is all about glory. The deepest longing of the human heart and the deepest meaning of heaven and earth are summed up in this; the glory of God. The universe was made to show it, and we were made to see it and savor it.

John Piper

We are all starved for the glory of God, not self. No one goes to the Grand Canyon to increase self-esteem. Why do we go? Because there is greater healing for the soul in beholding splendor than there is in beholding self.

John Piper

A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell.

C.S. Lewis

Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.

Psalm 29:1-2

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Matthew 5:16
