Glorifying God


Jesus said to his disciples, “This is how my Father is glorified – you become my disciples, and bear much fruit” Jn 15:8). Parents find glory in the achievements of their children, and teachers at the success of their students. Jesus uses a similar pattern in God’s glory by the spiritual fruits we earn by becoming disciples of Jesus. Thus, Jesus established the relationship between the Father, the Son, and the fruitful Christians.

During the sermon on the mount Jesus told his disciples, “Your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father” (Mt 5:16). The spiritual achievement of the disciple is part of the accomplishment of Christ, who glorifies the Father through his successful act of redemption. Every action of a Christian should be oriented towards the greater glory of God. Paul advises, “Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God” (1 Cor 10:31).
