“I am the Lord; that is my name! I will not give my glory to anyone else, nor share my praise with carved idols." (Isaiah 42:8 NLT)
God is God and He will not share His glory with another – He will not allow us to take credit for what He has done, or receive the praise, honor or worship that is His alone.
Why is it so tempting to take some small part of the glory for something we do or accomplish for Christ? We are servants of Jesus Christ and should never forget our place is in the background. The purpose of our service to Him is to bring glory to His name, not ours.
Examine your own life and service today and make sure the glory it produces is being reflected in the right direction.
What did you do this past week that you could not have done unless God enabled or empowered you to do it?
To God be the glory!
