The Bible makes it pretty clear. The ultimate goal of the universe is to show the glory of God! It is the reason for everything that exists, yes including you and me, my friend. God made it all for his glory. Without God’s glory, there would be absolutely nothing.
Now you may ask; what is the glory of God? It is who God is, everything about him. It is the essence of his nature, the weight of his importance, the radiance of his splendor, the demonstration of his power, and the atmosphere of his presence. God’s glory is the expression of his goodness and all his other eternal qualities.
Today in this restless and upside down world many are asking; where is the glory of God? Just look around. Everything created by God reflects his glory in some way. We see it everywhere, from the smallest microscopic form of life to the large ones. From sunset and stars to storms and seasons. Creation reveals our Creator’s glory. In nature we learn that God is powerful, that he enjoys variety, loves beauty, is organized, and is wise and creative. The Bible says, “The heavens declare the glory of God.” Psalm 19:1
Through history, God has revealed his glory to people in different settings. He revealed it first in the garden of Eden, then to Moses, then in the tabernacle and the temple, then through Jesus the Savior, and through the church. “And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a father’s only son, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14
It is summer. Look around and listen. Keep your eyes open. You may learn something
about this great God and about His glory. Namely it is all for Him.
