Believers in Christ are and should be GLORY seekers and not attention seekers! The Bible says, “But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Read Matthew 6:33 (NIV). I love this verse because of its precision and instruction – first, the Kingdom, secondly, His righteousness, then…
The Church, we the people of God are the GLORY of God in the earth. I say this because the Bible says, “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul.” Read Genesis 2:7 (KJV). Some translations render this verse, “And we became another speaking spirit like God.” Watch this, you and I are of the same class as God (Pause and calmly think). God took a piece of Himself, the very essence of His being, and deposited His very nature and character is us.
Well, you might be saying, I don’t fully express and exhibit the nature and character of God; I am with you, but wait for a minute, the Bible says, “For it is God who is at work within you, giving you the will and the power to achieve His purpose.” Read Philippians 2:13 (PHILLIPS).
It is God’s good pleasure to express His GLORY through you, and that is why He sent His only begotten… Pause! God is worthy to be praised, He is highly lifted up, He deserves all the GLORY and all the HONOUR.
