Living a Life That Glorifies God

In our series, Intentional Living, we delve into the heart of what it means to glorify God in every facet of our lives. This week’s sermon, “Living a Life That Glorifies God,” challenges us as the Church to be the light of the world, a city on a hill that cannot be hidden, illuminating our surroundings with the of God’s love (Matthew 5:14-16).

Understanding What It Means to Glorify God

To “glorify” God means to praise, honour, and admire Him. This encompasses not only our actions toward God but also His actions toward us. We glorify God by living our lives in a manner that pleases Him, offering ourselves in total surrender.

Live It Out:

  1. Love God Above All Else: Our primary duty is to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength (Mark 12:30). When we prioritize God above all else, we display that He is first in our lives.
  2. Spiritual Growth: Strive to grow spiritually by seeking to know God more deeply and obey His commands. As we grow, we become more Christlike, exhibiting the fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23).
  3. Reflect Christ in Relationships: Our relationships should reflect the gospel’s love. Show kindness, humility, and forgiveness as Christ forgave us. Let’s be ambassadors of Christ in our interactions with others.
  4. Use Your Gifts for Service: Be a good steward of your time, talents, and finances. Use these resources wisely and serve others. Invest in heavenly treasures and be a blessing to those in need.
  5. Share the Gospel: It’s a privilege to share the gospel. Tell others about Jesus and His life-changing love. Your personal story can demonstrate God’s goodness to others.
