In John 17, Jesus talks about glory: that he glorifies the Father, the Father is glorified in him, and Jesus is glorified in us. If we are invited into this amazing experience of God’s glory, why do we so often seek glory from other sources? Guest preacher Justin Anderson teaches on this profound truth.
Does it feel wrong to ask to be glorified? What is the difference between seeking glory from God and seeking glory from another human?
Jesus asks God to glorify him because he accomplished the mission he was given. What is the mission God has given you?
If God was going to glorify you, what would he talk about?
If your glory were tied only to how your neighbors have grown as image bearers, what glory would you receive?
In your worst moments, who do you seek glory from and for what behavior?
1. Pray that our lives would bring glory to Jesus in all our thoughts, words, and deeds.
2. Pray that we would seek Jesus' glory by sharing the good news with those in our lives who don't know Jesus.
