From the beginning, the glory of God has been very coveted, man has wanted to possess that glory that belongs to God alone. Man has always wanted to be recognized, remembered by all and believed the great character of creation, but this is not so brothers, God is the great character of all creation, man is not the whole of creation, Jesus is the everything of creation and everything created has been to satisfy the divine will of our God.
The Bible tells us that God does not share His glory with anyone, there is also another passage from the Bible in the book of Acts that tells us that King Herod did not give glory to God and God in front of all the people made to notice who belongs the glory. It is very common to see in our days how certain men want to steal God’s glory and believe that they are the great thing, however, the Bible says that every knee will bend, no matter how powerful they feel, it also says that every tongue will confess that Jesus is the Lord.
The apostle Paul said:
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31
We really have to understand our position, our position is not to shine or to be the main figure, no! We are only clay vessels where God has decided to glorify Himself, but this is for His own glory, not ours. The apostle Paul also says that he who wishes to boast will boast in God. Brothers, God is the only one deserving of all glory and honor, we are only vessels.
Let’s continue raising the flag of the Protestant Reformation, which said: “Soli Deo Gloria” or “Glory to God alone”. Let us give glory to God with our lives and that all we do is to render praise and glory to God.
