VerseD: Romans 8:18

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
Romans 8:18, ESV

Jesus promised His followers that we would have troubles in this life. He uses these troubles to bless others through us, and we will one day share in His glory when He returns and makes all things new.

VerseD: Revelation 4:11

“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.”
Revelation 4:11, ESV

God deserves all praise, honor, and glory, if for no other reason than He created everything.

Further, He saved us through His Son. That deserves our love and devotion.

VerseD: Luke 22:19

And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”
Luke 22:19, ESV

Christ’s body was broken so that we may be healed, at least spiritually for now, but eventually we shall join Him with glorified bodies.

VerseD: Hebrews 13:16

And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
Hebrews 13:16, NASB

God gives us stuff to do good and help others, to share with our brothers and sisters in Christ and those who are suffering and in need. All to His glory.

VerseD: Colossians 1:16

For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.
Colossians 1:16, ESV

Material, spiritual, physical, metaphysical, galactic, microscopic and below and in between and beyond – everything was made through and for Christ.

Including us.

Our purpose in life is to glorify the Creator.

VerseD: Luke 2:13-14

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”
Luke 2:13‭-‬14, ESV

Some teach angelic beings do not sing, or at least not anymore, since The Fall.

Is it too much to think they may have at the birth of the Son of God?

Regardless, they worship Jesus. May we join with them!

VerseD: Matthew 5:16

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 5:16, ESV

Our love for each other, care for others, and commitment to Christ will show people who He is, and they can only give glory to God if they are saved.

That means God uses you to reach the lost.
