The Glory of God

“Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.”  I Corinthians 10:31

Quote:  The great composer J.S. Bach headed his compositions with the letters “J.J.” or “Jesus Juva” which means, “Jesus help me.” He ended them “S.D.G.” The letters stood for “Soli Dei gratia” which means “To God alone the praise.

Word Study: The most common Old Testament word for glory is kabod, which means “heavy” (Genesis 31:1 – The Law of First Mention). It also carries the connotation of the shining light of God’s presence (Exodus 24:17). In the New Testament we find the word glory translated from the Greek word—doxa, from which we get the English word “doxology.”  It carries the idea of honor, dignity, and reputation.

  • A Goal that is Assumed for Life (I Corinthians 10:32-33).
