Glorify: reveal or make clearer the glory of (God) by one's actions.
Today's sermon at HOPE was "Life, On Purpose." I had never heard of the Westminster Catechism, but the first question and answer that David shared from it struck me: What is the chief end of man? To glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.
Glorify and enjoy.
My goal is to glorify. To reveal more of the glory of God through my actions. To make Him clearer through what I do. To live intentionally, to live my life on purpose, with glorifying Him as the whole goal.
C.S. Lewis talks about it like this: "Our whole destiny seems to lie...in becoming clean mirrors filled with the image of a face that is not ours."
Abba, may I be a mirror that reflects You. May I spend so much time with You that I soak up all You are and spill it out around me. May I know You so well that I become more and more like You. May I reveal You with my life. May I delight in You, in Your will, in Your promises. May I make You clearer through my words, my actions, my choices, my love. May I enjoy You forever and glorify You endlessly.
"Fully to enjoy is to glorify. In commanding us to glorify Him, God is inviting us to enjoy Him." --C.S. Lewis
