What do you think of when you hear the term “glorifying God?” Likely, it sounds like something really profound such as leading an unbeliever to Christ or maybe praying and seeing someone healed from disease. Let me simplify it for you…
Dictionary.com gives one definition as “to treat as more excellent than would normally be considered.” So how can we glorify God?
I believe we glorify God by walking in the Spirit when we don’t necessarily feel like it. Galatians 5:22 says that the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control.
The next time you’re feeling impatient, unjoyful, or out of control, change your reaction and you’ll be glorifying God. It’s that simple!
