(Second Milers also read – Psalms 36 – 40; Proverbs 8)

“Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.” (John 7:16-18)

“Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.” (John 20:21)

Good morning. Do you have peace this morning? Look at John 20:21. Jesus said, “Peace be unto you…”; and then there is a colon. A colon usually gives a fuller explanation of the statement before it. According to what Jesus said in John chapter 7, He was seeking to bring gory to His Father who sent Him. And there is peace for us in doing the same. How can we bring glory to God? Here are 9 ways…

“And Joshua said unto Achan, My son, give, I pray thee, glory to the LORD God of Israel, and make confession unto him; and tell me now what thou hast done; hide it not from me.” (Joshua 7:19)

1) Be Truthful – Achan was told to give glory to the Lord by telling the truth about what he had done.

“And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.” (Luke 17:12-19)

2) Be Thankful – only one of the 10 lepers returned to give God glory.

“Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.” (1Chronicles 16:10)

3) Be Joyful – let your heart rejoice in His Holy Name.

“Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations.” (1Chronicles 16:24)

4) Be Witnessing – declare His glory.

“Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.” (1Chronicles 16:29)

5) Be Giving – bring an offering, and come before him. God doesn’t need your money: He’s given you 168 hours this week, do you have 17 hours to bring to Him?

“Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the LORD: for great is the glory of the LORD.” (Psalm 138:5)

6) Be Singing – God will give you a song to sing no matter what your situation is.

“And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them. And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man. And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.” (Acts 12:21-23)

7) Be Fearful – the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.


“Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.” (Romans 4:18-21)

8) Be Believing – what God has promised, He is able to perform!

“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:5-11)

9) Be Saved – for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

“Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.” (Psalm 24:7-10)

Peace. (Habakkuk 2:14)
