What’s it mean to “glorify God”?


Basically, one aspect of what it means to “glorify God” is to do what He says to do.

When we obey Him, then we best reflect His glory to others.

Jesus Christ is our Head and we are His body. We are the body of Christ and are to act like His hands and feet.

We are ambassadors of Christ. We are to represent Him as a loving, merciful God who is also just and upright in everything in that God will by no means clears the guilty.

Who is God? What is His divine character like? Jesus gave us a picture of Him while He walked the earth that can be read in the Gospels.

Also, Exodus 34:6-8 gives us a picture of the character of God: “The Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, 7 keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children’s children, to the third and the fourth generation.” 8 And Moses quickly bowed his head toward the earth and worshiped.”
