Ascribe to the Lord the GLORY due His name
🗣️ “Declare his GLORY among the nations…
🗣️ Ascribe to the Lord the GLORY due His name..” 📖 1Chronicles 16:24,29
The glory of the Lord 🌈
📝 When Phinehas’ wife heard that the Ark of God had been captured and that her father-in-law and her husband were dead , on her dead bed she said , “The glory has departed from Israel ” ( 1Sam 4: 19-22 ) . But the God of the Bible is “the Lord who reigns , and his judgements are in all the earth.. but his love endures forever ” ( 1Chronicles 16: 14,31,34 )
WHY STUDY THE GLORY OF GOD ❓
💫 It shows us that ” we fall short of the glory of God ” ( Rom 3:23 )
💫 It teaches us what matters most — God’s own glory ( Isaiah 42:8 )
💫 It gives an introduction of the One and True God — GOD OF GLORY ( Acts 7:2 )
💫 If we grasp and affirm it from our heart , it will be a life – changing experience :
📌 It will transform our sense of worship ( Is 6:1-4)
📌 It will humble us ( Is 6:5a)
📌 It will lead us to obedience ( Is 6:6-8)
📌 It will help us to understand the aim of our lives – “to see GOD’S GLORY in all things ( 1Cor 10:31 )
🌈 THE GLORY OF GOD IS HIS ATTRIBUTES :
🔖 God is the Creator , Redeemer , Saviour and Incomprehensible.
🔖 God is Holy , Merciful, Eternal, Faithful and Just.
