TL-10 - Exalting Christ Through The Gospel
“Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness” (Ps. 29:2). Welcome to our study of exalting Christ through the Gospel. The child of God has the privilege and the responsibility of glorifying the name of God in all that he says and does. In fact, that is why I am here. And there is why you are here on this Earth. God said in Isaiah 43:7, “Everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him.” God created us to laud and magnify His holy name by our lives and actions. As the apostle Paul thought about the need for Christians to live lives worthy of God and the Gospel, he said, “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Cor. 10:31). In whatever actions we take or words we say, we must make sure that we honor God. Ecclesiastes 12:13 says, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man’s all.” Jesus taught in Mark 12:30 that we are to love the Lord our God “with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.” That is the first and greatest commandment.
