Glorifying God

The real man lives to glorify God. Spiritual qualities make up the stature of the perfect man; and we glorify God as we manifest these qualities in our daily experience.

God is infinite, ever present divine Mind; and all that exists as His creation, man and the universe, expresses Him in some manifestation of intelligence. Patience, meekness, kindness, love, humility, gentleness, sincerity, forgiveness—these and kindred qualities express divine being. These qualities, expressed in our thinking and living, are our evidences in the world, and to the world, that we are learning to know God aright. We begin to glorify God the moment our hearts are moved to accept His tender, loving presence, which we can express in the manifestation of the attributes of the divine nature. From the inexhaustible storehouse of divine Mind the receptive thought is continually receiving health-giving and life-giving ideas, which must of necessity find expression in better living and in more devout selflessness and consecration.

Christ Jesus faithfully and constantly manifested the qualities of divine Love in all his healing ministry. He was continually showing by some display of loving-kindness and goodness the ever-presence and the all-sufficiency of God, good. His glorification of God was constant. He was ever watchful and vigilant, eager to work for God. He lived the truth of the statement he made when, comforting his disciples, he declared, "The Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works." In all his acts, in all his thoughts, "he lived the precepts which he taught." Just before he was parted from his disciples, when his heart yearned to strengthen their faith and trust, he prayed, "Glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee." He further stated in this wonderful prayer that he had glorified the Father on earth by accomplishing the work which had been given him to do. Jesus lived to glorify God.
