Many have tried to define the glory of God. The Bible often describes it as a light that is much brighter than anything seen on earth. But what does that mean for us Christians? In this selection of sermons, Alistair Begg examines what the Bible says about the glory of the Lord and reminds us to give him the glory that is his due.

In praise of his glory (Ephesians 1: 11-14) – Listen to | Download MP3 | Buy CD ($ 1.25)

An inheritance is something of value that is promised to family members. Paul wrote to the Ephesians explaining that both Jews and Gentiles received in Christ an inheritance of eternal life in the family of God that fulfills the Lord's plan for unity. Alistair Begg helps us understand how being in Christ affects the daily life of a believer, as the Holy Spirit guides and empowers us to live not for ourselves but for the glory of God.

Some passages extol the character of God, and it can be tempting to rush through these passages for more practical aspects. However, Alistair Begg suggests that we take the time to look at the attributes of God in order to maintain an appropriate perspective on Him and ourselves. Careful consideration of how powerful, perfect, and praiseworthy God is will change the way we think, act, and experience security.

Solos Deo Gloria (Daniel 4: 28-37) – Listen to | Download MP3 | Buy CD ($ 1.25)

In Daniel's day, King Nebuchadnezzar looked to Babylon and glorified himself for the kingdom he believed he had created. However, God sent him together with Daniel as an interpreter disturbing dreams to awaken his spirit. As a result, the king's pride in himself gave way to praise of God. As Alistair Begg reports, the concept of Soli Deo Gloria – “Glory to God alone” – should also be a reality in our lives, although we may have empires of our own.

God's place of residence (2 Chronicles 6:18) – Listen to | Download MP3 | Buy CD ($ 1.25)

Solomon's prayer at the dedication of the Lord's Temple confirmed that no earthly dwelling could hold the God of creation. The miracle of the incarnation, explains Alistair Begg, is that an unstoppable god became flesh and became Immanuel, "God with us". God's plan has always been a person, not a place. The glory of Jesus exceeded that of the temple, and his death enables us to draw closer to God. Although Christ ascended to heaven, he still resides in his church, a new temple made of "living stones," united by the work of the Holy Spirit.

Take five (1 Timothy 3: 1-17) – Listen to | Download MP3 | Buy CD ($ 1.25)

What would you tell a young Christian about life? The apostle Paul tells Timothy what to do in 2 Timothy 3. Using this passage and the texts of Isaiah, Philippians, and Hebrews, Alistair Begg reminds us that we should strive to live humble lives, focused on God's glory and trusting in God's grace. When we choose to seek God's glory over our own, we will know that we have begun to live according to the scriptures.
