The Glory Of God Has Set Us Ablaze With His Light!

The public display of the infinite beauty and worth of God is what is meant by "glory," and its based partly on Isaiah 6, where the Seraphim said, "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty. The whole earth is full of his glory" and you would expect them to say "holiness" and they say "glory." They're ascribing "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty. The whole earth is full of his glory" and when that goes public in the earth and fills it, you call it "glory."

God’s holiness evokes awe, fear, and conviction of sin in human beings. The prophet Isaiah describes his encounter with God, from the above verse we can see that God's holiness goes with God's glory so for us to experience His glory we must strive to be holy like God!

For God’s glory to be manifested in our lives, we must be willing to obey His word. Exodus 19:5-6 says “Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, 6) you will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites.”

From the above bible verse, we can hear God saying to us that if we obey Him fully there is no limit to what He can do for us. That means for us to experience the Shekinah Glorious divine presence of God, we must be willing to live in obedience and holiness for Hebrews 12:14 says “Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.”

Exodus 15:11 "Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like you, majestic in holiness, awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders?"

I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him stood the seraphim… And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!” And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke. And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!” (Isa. 6:1–5)

God's glory is the radiance of his holiness, the radiance of his manifold, infinitely worthy and valuable perfections. So we must make God's glory shine. We must make it visible. "Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father who is in heaven" (Matthew 5:16). So the goal of our lives should be to live that when people get to know us, they would see God's glory radiating in us and over us.....Hallelujah!
