Day 3: CREATED FOR THE GLORY OF GOD
Take a minute to quickly think about every movie or tv show you’ve seen this week. And every song you’ve heard. Every news article you’ve read. And every other book you may have read. That’s a lot of information you’ve taken in! Now, out of all of that information, how often did you see, hear, or read the word, ‘Glory?’
If you read your Bible, you may have seen it. But if you’re being honest, you probably didn’t see, hear, or read the word glory very much at all. It’s just not a common word within in our culture. But while we don’t use the term often, we do hear words such as honor, magnificence, and beauty. We also understand what it means to take delight in something or someone. These words are all definitions of ‘Glory’.
With this knowledge, we can now think about what it means to have been created for the GLORY of God. It means that all things – including you! – were created for the honor of God. You were created to display the magnificence of God. You were created to mirror the delight and pleasure of God. As you read today, consider this: How would your daily life be different if you took time every day to dwell on the truth that you were created for the GLORY of God?
How would your daily life be different if you took time every day to dwell on the truth that you were created for the GLORY of God?
Think about a time when you really believe you reflected the delight and the pleasure of God. What was that like?
In your own life, what barriers get in the way of reflecting the delight and pleasure of God regularly?

Reflect: What did you H.E.A.R. from God today? HEAR Bible Study Method
Heavenly Father, I confess that I don’t regularly take opportunities to dwell on the truth that I have been created for Your Glory. Today, I humbly ask that you reveal to me in subtle ways, little reminders that I was created for Your honor. That I was created to display the magnificence of who You are. That I was created to mirror the delight and pleasure of You to others. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
