Glory to God
“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.” John 14:12 (ESV)
With the ascension of Jesus and His promise of the Holy Spirit’s power, comes greater glory to God. The Old Testament believers of the true God were limited to public expressions of obedience to old covenant laws until the gift of the Holy Spirit would come at Pentecost. We are now free to bring glory to God in all our circumstances of life.
With the Holy Spirit filling us and as we give Him authority over our human spirit — our will — it is in that yielding that we shine as a light before a dark world. The power of God’s grace in our lives will give glory to God, and not to ourselves.
Let’s pray today that in all situations, good and bad, we will rightly give glory to God.
