GBL-5 - A Life That Glorifies God
Through the prophet Isaiah, God said, “Everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him” (Is. 43:7). Not only is that a wonderful passage about the handiwork and creative power of God, but it also expresses the fact that every person who claims to be a Christian (the new name given to God’s people—Isaiah 62:1-2) ought to make it his or her purpose to live for God and live for Him every day. There are so many people who are living life without any real purpose. There are others who are seeking fleshly, earthly pleasures—whether it be power, money, fame, or the lusts and passions of the flesh. Welcome to our study of “a life that glorifies God.” I want us to think for a few moments today about how a person can instill in his or her life the idea contained in Isaiah 43:7. Every day we need to glorify and magnify the name of God.
