Scriptures: Exodus 33:17-19, Exodus 34:5-7
Moses asked God: "Show me thy glory." Moses had already seen God's power and majesty through: a burning bush not consumed, the plagues of Egypt, the Red Sea divided, the mountain on fire, the pillar of fire, water from a rock and manna from Heaven.
To man glory is excellence of ability, so what is God's glory?
1) It is His character- His very nature
2) It is love for God is love.
3)Mercy- " which endures forever...by which we are saved."
4) Longsuffering- patience
5) Goodness- the Word tells us that the goodness of God leads us to repentance
6) Truth- the conduit of freedom
7) Forgiveness- He is faithful to forgive
8) Justice- He visits iniquity
As followers of Christ we should strive to show the world and the church God's glory. Miracles are evidence of His power. Prophecies are the evidence of His majesty. It is His mercy, His grace, and His love that show His glory. Let's strive to show the world His character, nature and glory!
