Thought of the Day May 7, 2021 Doing the will of God glorifies him

By 10:58 AM


In line with doing the will of God as our way of glorifying God, Jesus tells us: “In this, my Father is glorified: that you should bring forth very much fruit and become my disciples” (John 15:8).  When we follow Jesus as true disciples, learning from him how to please the Father in all things, then we are glorifying God. When we act on the command of Jesus to love one another as he has loved us, then we will be glorifying God. This is one of the fruits of our relationship with Jesus. When we embrace the daily crosses in our lives without complaining, then we are following in the footsteps of Jesus, Our Lord and Master. For our salvation Jesus endured the cross of humiliation, setting an example for us. In this he glorified the Father; in this we will also glorify the Father. How attentive are we in trying to glorify God during the day? It is his right and our duty to glorify God in our lives.
