JOHN 7.17-24 JESUS SAID, BUT HE WHO SEEKS THE GLORY OF THE ONE WHO SENT HIM IS TRUE
We are taking one more closer look at this section of scripture because this time I want to focus on verse 18 that speaks to Jesus being the true one from God, who seeks not His own glory, but that of the Father. The Bible uses the word glory 351 times. 17 times in Bible it talks specifically about glory of God, but all the whole Bible is about God and His Glory. That is why we cannot save ourselves, because He is the only one glorious and holy enough to do it. Our whole world and especially our culture here in the United States has come to the place where we see the glory, not God’s or any others but ours. We always have to be first, we always have to have our way, and we always have to have the best things for our life or our children. God says in James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up. He says in 1Pe 5:6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time. (NKJV) This means if God wants us to be exalted…..HE WILL DO IT and we should not. This is a lesson we really need to learn in today’s culture and world. Whose glory do you seek?
