Summary

To live out the Glory of God we must – Shift our focus:
– away from living for ourselves and the glory of us and shifting to a position of recognizing that we are created for the glory of God
To live out the Glory of God we must – NOT be ashamed:
– Do people in the office or your classroom even know that you know the living God? Or is that stuff only for church?
To live out the Glory of God we must – expect to suffer:
– Be in a position where you would rather suffer for the name of Jesus than fall into sin or remain silent about the one who saved your soul.
To live out the Glory of God we must – recognise it’s only possible if we are filled with the Holy Spirit:
– always recognizing that it is Christ who strengthens us and that through his strength anything, even the endurance of suffering is possible.
