Sermons about Glorify God
Our Maker has made us to interact with and intersect with others in life. We are not an island unto ourselves where we reside in a fort built for one but have been designed to connect our islands and form alliances.
For thousands of years, man has been puzzled with this very simple question - Why Am I Here? The reason there is so much confusion about the matter is due to the fact that men have attempted to answer the question from their own perspective. Philosophers and Self-Help authors have produced tons of literature on the subject, but the bulk of their rhetoric ignores the testimony of the God who created them. The Word of God gives clear testimony regarding our purpose on earth. Anyone who cares to know, can find the answers there. This message presents seven clear cut purposes of life for each and every person on planet earth.
As we begin the new year, Pastor Steve looks at the words and ministry of Paul the Apostle. In 1 Corinthians 9, Paul explains how he runs the race, not as a man wildly beating the air, but as a man with purpose and a focus on the finish line. Today's message is a challenge to focus our lives and our actions on the Lord in this new year. Have you set resolutions for this year? Are you running with the finish line in view? Or are you as "one that beateth the air?" Today is a great day to start focusing on the finish line, glorifying God in our daily lives

Pastor Ben's study of 2 Thessalonians continues with a look at how we can glorify God through it all.
It is fitting that the we should end finding the psalmist in prayer for that is precisely how we have learned from him throughout most of the 176 vv. This is because he is a man who is living out his relationship to God. Relationship is just that, it is interaction, it is living life with God in a hostile world - talking to Him; trusting Him; complaining to Him; rejoicing in Him; seeking His favor. So here he is, once again. pouring out his heart to God in prayer and we, the readers, are standing in a dark corner of his inner room, hidden by the shadows of time, and listening to his Holy Spirit inspired expressions of faith. And we see and hear a man who has been humbled before God. There is not hint of self-righteousness, no shadow of self-satisfaction, nor shimmer of pride as he approaches God with a real sense of dependence and trust. And this is surely one of the truest marks of grace in a redeemed heart. The psalmist prayer manifest humility and genuine dependence on God in all things. 4 Expressions of dependence by one who has been humbled before God. His need for understanding His need of God’s grace to worship rightly His need for God’s Salvation His need for God’s preserving grace
