Topic: Those That God Does Not Give His Glory To Or Share With
Author: Pastor Abraham David
I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
Isaiah 42:8 KJV
God’s people are glorified people, we are partakers of the glory of God, this is not pride and it’s not arrogance, it’s whom God had made us, He’s given us His glory by giving us His only Son Jesus Christ who has become our life, our Lord and Saviour.
But in our theme scripture, we read that God will not give His glory to another, what does this statement mean? It mean what God said, that God won’t give His glory to another apart from Himself and anyone that looks like Him. Any god apart from the most high God is another, and any man who is not born of God is another. God will not, and will never share His glory with another, neither His praise to golden images; but we are not another men, we are one with Him.
The glory of God is the manifestation of the presence of God. His presence is not with sinners, and it’s not with any idol men set up as god, that’s why He said He will not give His glory to another. But we are not sinners, we are God’s very children, having His very life and nature; He lives in us and with us, meaning His glory is in us and with us. Hallelujah!
The glory of God comes with justification, that means, without justification, there can never be His glory; so, the man God does not share His glory with is a sinful man, because the glory of God don’t stay where sin reigns. We have been justified, and according to the scripture, as many as have been justified have also been glorified, that’s what the scripture says, that’s what Jesus said too when He told the Father in His prayer that He had given the glory which the Father gave Him to those who believe in Him and have received eternal life.
Sin is an enemy of righteousness, we are not sinners, we have been made righteous, we are God’s holy people, the place where He is glorified, honoured, and praised forever. Praise the Lord.
Precious Father, thank you for making me holy, thank you for identifying yourself with me, thank you for making me a new man in Christ, and thank you for your glory in me and with me, in Jesus name. Amen.
Exodus 34:14; Psalm 83:18; Isaiah 48:11.
