Awhile back I wrote a post about the line in “Everything Glorious” that says “You Make Everything Glorious, what does that make me?” As I’ve been studying about worship and God’s purpose behind worship, I came to a realization. God does glorify men sometimes, or lift up nations, or cause victory of a certain person, etc. The purpose is to bring glory to Himself. Multiple times in the Psalms the Psalmists write “for the purpose of Your Glory . . .” normally it’s followed by an action that God performs toward us. Perhaps salvation, or rescue, perhaps a lifting up of someone, but it always comes back to the glory of God. This is the reason that we exist, to give God praise, if it were not true then God would not have instituted action to bring Himself glory ever, and we would not see worship happening in heaven in the Book of Revelation. Whatever happens to us we need to bring the glory back to God. So if God makes “everything glorious,” and the answer to the question “what does that make me?” is “I am glorious” then that glory needs to point back to God and bring glory to God don’t you think?
This is an idea I’m really processing right now, it’s not really refined. Share your thoughts on this. Help me refine it, and the hope is to explore this idea together!
