I really feel inadequate to preach on this topic because I really feel I can never do justice to a topic such as this if I were to preach it properly.
The glory of God is the goal of creation. It is the goal of why the universe and the galaxies exists. It is the goal of why the earth exists with all its creatures.
The glory of God is the goal of our human existence. God made moral creatures to love and obey and serve Him. He placed Adam and Eve in the Garden to be visible displays of his glory.
The glory of God is the goal of our redemption. tells us that he saved us to the praise of His glory.
The glory of God is the goal of why the church exist. To give Him glory through the manifold wisdom of God displayed in the church.
The glory of God is the goal of the judgment of unbelievers. God’s glory is put on display by judging sinners and saving sinners by his mercy (Romans 9).
The glory of God is the goal of the new creation. It is what we will be doing in the new heavens and the new earth giving glory to the lamb who was slain.
Soli Deo Gloria was the heart of the Reformation. Salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone for the glory of God alone.
Soli Deo Gloria was the glue that held all the other Solas together.
So, when I’m talking about the glory of God, do you understand why I feel inadequate to do justice to such a topic in a 45 minute talk?
The glory of God is the goal of the Scriptures, the goal of creation, the goal of our redemption, the goal of our worship, the goal of our glorification.
Romans 11:34–36 ESV
“For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?” “Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.
After speaking of the soveriengty of God and the election of Israel and the judgments of God, Paul breaks out into praise.
He quotes from Scripture. No one is able to be God except God. God is infinitely wise. He is completely independent. He is completely self sufficient.
