ReThink Jesus- His Glory, Not Ours

July 12th, 2020


John 17:1-5 (ESV)

17 When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you, since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.

Jesus show us how we give God all the glory.:

Go after God's Glory (vs 1, 4-5)

  • Live the glory of God-driven life.
  • The greatest good we can do is to always seek God’s glory.
  • We exist for one primary purpose and that is to give glory to God.
  • Live out the truth of Psalm 115:1 : "Not to us, O Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory."

Embrace Eternal Life (vs 2-3)

  • You must surrender your life to Him in order to experience eternal life.
  • It is when we have a relationship of knowing, we can experience the abundant life right now.

Rest in His finished work (vs 4)

  • What Jesus accomplished on the cross is complete and totally finished.
  • Jesus’ strategy for reaching the world was to pour himself into people.

Look into the Glory to Come (vs 5)

  • The cross is the way home to the Father, the bridge to glory, where Jesus will be restored.

So what do we do from here?

  • Work at doing everything for God's glory.
  • What are you doing right now that does not bring glory to God?
  • Parents, teach and train your children to live the glory driven-life.
  • Completely surrender, declaring God sovereign over every area of our lives.

The truth is…it’s not all about you or me…it’s all about God and His glory.
