How Do I Know if I am Glorifying God? *
- Confess Jesus as Lord
9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
- Consecrated in everything you do
1 Corinthians 10:31
31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
- Confess your sins to God
19 And Joshua said unto Achan, My son, give, I pray thee, glory to the LORD God of Israel, and make confession unto him; and tell me now what thou hast done; hide it not from me.
- Cling to his Promises
20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
- Praise God
23 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.
- Pray to God
13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
- Be pure in your body and mind
1 Corinthians 6:20
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
- Serve God in your church
1 Peter 4:10–11
10 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
11 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.
- Bearing fruit of righteousness
8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
