Biblical Concept: Godís Glory
Godís Glory: the height, the breadth, the depth of theology.† Understand Godís glory, understand everything. (Compare the Biblical Concept: Glory, The Summary.)
Godís Glory is the Grand Unifying Theory of Theology / Everything. (By the end of my theological career, I had envisioned sort of a grand sentence describing everything. I think I have done it in two words: Godís Glory.) (I could make a case for three words: Godís Holy Glory.† No other words are needed.)
Instead of / in addition to / seeking Godís will, seek His glory.
Godís glory is why God created anything.† He created to glorify Himself.† (A case could be made that Godís other attributes / characteristics would be opposed to creating anything.† The rebellion of volitional beings would be very offensive to Godís holiness, righteousness, justice, etc.† Godís glory won the day,† in eternity past, as the council of God decided to do anything.) (See Biblical Concept: Why did God do anything?)
Creation glories God.
To receive Glory, God created volitional beings.† God knew the good and the bad that would come with volitional beings.† God wanted the good, the glory, so He created.† To counter the bad, God became an active participant among the volitional creatures, in the Person and Work of Jesus Christ. The Person and work of Jesus Christ demonstrates that God is worthy of glory from volitional creatures.
John 3:16-21 †16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.† 17 "For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him.† 18 "He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.† 19 "And this is the judgment, that the light is come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their deeds were evil.† 20 "For everyone who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.† 21 "But he who practices the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.Ē
