“You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.”
To glorify God is to honor Him for who He really is. God has glory because He is infinitely valuable. Human beings have glory because we are created in the image of the One who is all-glorious (Genesis 1:27).
Honor originates in our hearts and refers to the value we personally place on something or someone. How do we honor God?
We honor God by being His temple ( 1 Corinthians 6:19).
We honor God by our wealth (Proverbs 3:9).
We honor God by living lives devoted to Him (Romans 14:8).
We honor God with pure heart (Isaiah 29:13).
We honor God by seeking Him continually (1 Chronicles 16:11).
When we make choices that reflect the place He has in our hearts, we bring Him the greatest honor.
