Hunger for God's Glory:
Psalm 63:1-2 (NIV)
You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water. I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.
Psalm 27:4 (NIV)
One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.
1 Corinthians 10:31 (NIV)
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
The journey of spiritual growth involves actively seeking God with immense hunger! We do this tangibly through a passionate prayer life, studying His Word, and desiring to live according to His word. As we grow in maturity, our hunger for God's glory will naturally increase, leading to a deeper and more meaningful relationship with Him.
People are drawn to light! Let our hunger be an accelerant to the fire of God burning in us!
Let us see people and not numbers, status or opportunity. Let’s see with His eyes so we can grow individually and our city can see His glory!!!!
The glory of God is an all-encompassing concept that captures the transcendent nature of our God Almighty. It is the main theme woven throughout the Bible, highlighting the beauty and excellence of God's character and His sovereign rule as creator.
It is His Majestic Splendor! His Holiness and Righteousness! His Goodness and Love! To sum it up it is His presence!
