God created us to bring glory to Him. This is our purpose that we fulfill in our lives. Let us read some verses that show us this truth.

1 Corinthians 10:31 says, “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.”

Isaiah 43:7 says, “Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.”

Romans 11:36 says, “For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.”

1 Peter 4:11 says, “If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”

1 Chronicles 16:29 says, “Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.”

To bring God glory means to bring Him honor, praise, and worship with our voices and with our lives. None of us naturally want to do this because “There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God” (Romans 3:11). However, when we see that the Lord Jesus loved us so much that He died for our sins on the cross, then we repent of our sins and trust in the Lord Jesus as our Savior. Immediately the Holy Spirit indwells us and gives us a new nature with new desires. As we read in Galatians 5:22-23, “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance.” Trusting Christ as our Savior opens the door for us to fulfill the reason why we were created: to glorify God with our lives. Notice that one of the fruit of the Spirit is joy. The Lord Jesus said in John 15:11, “These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.” Our prayer is that others will see Christ’s joy shining out of us and find their true purpose for living in glorifying God as well. As we read in Psalm 29:2, “Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.” (280.9) (DJ)
