Glory to God
The Upward Look
by Max D. Hutto,
“And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.’” Luke 2:13-14 NASB
The angel had proclaimed the good news of the birth of the Savior. Suddenly the heavenly host joined in praising God, giving glory to God. That is worship! As we celebrate the birth of the Savior, we too must worship God! We must give Him glory and honor and praise, not only as we gather as the church on Sunday but every moment of every day. The old catechisms stated that man’s chief purpose is to glorify God and to enjoy him forever.
Lord Jesus, my chief aim is to praise You with my whole life. May all that I say and all that I do bring glory and honor to You, my Savior and Lord.
