Glorify Him As God!

When the organ peals out its melodious tones, but the heart is not in the singing, do you think that God has ears like a man, that can be tickled with sweet sounds? Why have you brought Him down to your level? He is spiritual! The music that delights Him is the love of a true heart, the prayer of an anxious spirit! He has better music than all your organs and drums can ever bring to Him! If He wanted music, He would not have asked you, for winds and wave make melodies transcendently superior to all your chief musicians can compose! Does He want candles when His torch makes the mountains to be great altars smoking with the incense of praise to the God of Creation? Oh, Brothers and Sisters, I fear that it has been true of many who externally appeared to be devout—“when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God!” Weep over your sins— then have you glorified Him as God! Fall on your face and be nothing before the Most High—then you have glorified Him as God! Accept His righteousness. Adore His bleeding Son. Trust in His infinite compassion. THEN you have glorified Him as God, for, “God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.” How far, my dear Hearers, have you complied with that requisition?

Charles H. Spurgeon   (1834 – 1892)

About Greg Coleman

I am a Particular Baptist who affirms the absolute sovereignty of the triune Godhead in all things. The fullness of the Godhead dwells in the God-man Jesus Christ. He is the Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, Disposer and Judge of all that ever was, is now or ever shall be. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and men. He was made to be sin for his people and saved them from their sins by his substitutionary, sacrificial death on the cross thereby satisfying the justice and wrath of God against them. The sufficiency of his death to the satisfaction of God’s justice is proven by his physical resurrection from the dead and enthronement in glory at the right hand of the Father. Jesus Christ is coming again to judge the living and the dead. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.

One Response to Glorify Him As God!

  1. Lyn Leahz says:

    Sometimes when I’m praying, like last night for example, I was saying, “Lord, I love you so much.” When I had a humbling thought. I am like a grain of sand floating in the midst of a raging sea..there are billions of other grains of sand…I am but one. I am so small before Him, mixed in with so many others. Who, little old me? Does God need my love? Will God go on without it? Of course; He is God! Yet, having made us in His image, I can only assume that God, like us, desires love and to be wanted by each and every one of us individually. Wow, He even knows the exact number of hairs upon my head every day! He desires that I love Him, and He misses me when I don’t call Him up daily on the heavenly phone. I must say, as big as God is, I’ve never once gotten His voice mail, and He always picks up on the first ring. How does He do it? I will never know; and so I just bless Him for the wonderful things He does, thought I don’t understand, and say to myself, “He is God!”
