"…Glory to God in the highest…" Luke 2:14a

Some would say this has been a tumultuous year. One thing for sure, God’s plan is still in place.  Nothing can change God’s plan (Matthew 24:35).  During this time of year, we look back at the experiences that could form our future decisions or we can look to the future with concern.   As we come to a point of contemplation, take comfort in why Jesus came into the world.   I am reminded in Scripture that bringing glory to God was the chief purpose of Jesus. Following His birth, the angels declared the glory of God: “Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased."  (Luke 2:13, 14 NLT).  When we look at the cross of Christ, it is hardly something one would say is glorious, but in reality Jesus came into the world to glorify the Father.  The cross is possibly the greatest display of God’s glory (John 3:16, 17).  Jesus’ goal was to see God’s purposes fulfilled, so Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice by giving His life.  But what followed is even more glorious.  He rose again in victory over sin and death.  He set us free to a hope that does not disappoint (John 8:36, Romans 5:5).  With Jesus in heart we hope of Heaven and victory in life.  This is also glory to God.  Now God has called us to bring him glory.  We can pursue the things that glorify Him, bring unity, and reveal His character in our lives: “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control” (Galatians 5:22-23).  Remember with a New Year comes new opportunities.  Remember to give God glory (1 Corinthians 10:31).
