The Glory of God

Share This Post

Recently I was re-reading Crazy Love by Francis Chan and I came across his suggestion to view the video below:

I am sure that many of you have seen similar videos – it starts with an image of a majestic place somewhere and then progressively works outwards until you see the curve of the Earth, the stars, the galaxies, the universe – on and on and on – until you begin to understand how very, very big God is and how very, very small we are – and yet, we are the people of His good pleasure!

We read in Psalm 19:1, “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork.”

And in Isaiah 6:3, “God is Holy, holy, holy and the whole earth is filled with His Glory!”

It is good to contemplate the works of God’s hands because, in them, we begin to get a sense of His holiness, His majesty, His immense power, His creativity and His glory. We love and serve an awesome God!

As we look forward to celebrating Easter, let us remember that this glorious God, the Creator of all, loved His people so much that He was willing to sacrifice His one and only Son so that we could be reconciled to Him.

As a staff, we have been reflecting on the principles of the Reformation during this 500th anniversary year and we have been reminded again of the last sola – Soli Deo Gloria to God be the glory! We are not the centre of the universe, God is. Everything we have and are is from God and not of ourselves. Even in salvation we are not central – the sovereign, covenant Lord tell us:

“I, I am He who blots out your transgression for My own sake” in Isaiah 43:25.

It begins and ends in what God has done for us – He chose us; He saved us while we were yet sinners and the glory is His and His alone. We are saved by grace through faith – all given to us so that we may not boast – so that we may glorify God for what He has done and for Who He is.

When we consider all of this, we can truly say with Paul in Romans 11:33-36

“Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable His judgments, and His paths beyond tracing out!
‘Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been His counsellor?’
‘Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them?’
For from Him and through Him and for Him are all things.
To Him be the glory forever! Amen.”
