In John 5, Jesus made this insightful but sober remark:
“How can you believe since you accept glory from one another but do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?”
One of the major obstacles to faith and the cause of unbelief is the desire to receive glory from mere mortals, instead of receiving honor from God.
My prayer: Lord, in all that I am doing, in all that I’ve done, and in all that I will do, I seek to bring glory to You alone, that people may take note of You, and not myself, and be stunned by Your awesomeness.
“Not to us, Lord, not to us
but to your name be the glory,
because of your love and faithfulness.”
