How does a church give glory unto God? Paul prays for the saints at the church at Ephesus.
What is it that makes a church strong? The Spirit of God working, inside human hearts. Unto Him be glory in the church. What also marks a church that gives glory to God is His love. God’s people are planted firmly and grounded in this love. They know the love of Christ and they show it. It’s God’s fullness. We are called to be a church overflowing with His great love. He wants us to know His fullness.
God truly gets the glory when His church gives Him the glory – for His working, in and through us. A church that gives glory to God says our God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us…
This kind of church is a spiritual work. A people strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man. May God truly be glorified in us.
