The Glory of God

Posted by Alan Collins in Uncategorized

I was struck when reading this story about Lazurus. Jesus said that Lazarus has died so that God could be glorified.  What does it mean to glorify God? its a saying we use a lot in Church. I have been realising lately that the Gospel of John paints a picture that the glory of God is in fact the Revelation of God. In other words God is glorified when we get a revelation about him. The funeral mourner certainly received a radical revelation about who God was when they saw Lazurus came out of the grave. Can you imagine their faces! It makes me wonder if my life is glorifying to God? Is my life being used, seeking out revelations about God both for myself and the people around me.

    Alan, These are great thoughts and questions. And I was glad to hear it on Sunday as well. Sometimes hearing things out-loud makes you think about it more!

    I really like your last question, “Is my life being used, seeking out revelations about God both for myself and the people around me?” I like that phrase “seeking revelations”. But I was wondering if you could describe a bit more what you meant by it. Do you mean revelation in a broad sense as in the Word, miracles, good deeds etc.?

    I am talking about revelations about who God is. Paul once wrote “Oh that I might know Him!…” The funny thing is Paul had been a believer for at least twenty years by this stage. It seems that our whole lives can be used to get to know God more and more as He is so immense.
