All Glory To God

Key Verse

“But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God” (1 Corinthians 1:24).

TEXT — 1 Corinthians 1:17-31


More than 50 years ago when the American astronaut, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, made history by landing on the moon, the first act he performed was to offer worship to God. Right there on the moon, he served himself Holy Communion from the wafer and wine he carried along, silently reading from John 15:5, which he had penned on a small notecard. Part of that Scriptures reads: “…for without me ye can do nothing.” As the world celebrated an unforgettable breakthrough, one man recognized the indispensable place of the Creator as the One who deserves all the glory for all our accomplishments.

Apostle Paul, led by the Holy Spirit, says that indeed all the wisdom, craft, ingenuity and philosophy of man from all generations must recede in the presence of the unfathomably wise God. He presents the case that even what might look like the “foolishness of God” is greater than the wisdom of man. The Jews looked for a sign, believing it was the way of salvation. Then the Greeks came, seeking wisdom as the panacea for man’s unhealthy condition. None was of any value.

But the new way God brought through Jesus’ death and subsequent resurrection has given man a new lease of life. Christ’s intervention transcends the hollowness of signs and the limits of man’s wisdom. He has with Him all life bestows not only here, but also hereafter. The Giver of these all-encompassing benefits deserves glory.

We must give glory to the Lord for our being and achievements. As you step out today, acknowledge God in all your ways, glorify Him in all your accomplishments and you will experience His power in all circumstances of life.

Thought for the day

It is folly to glory in what gives only ephemeral success.
