How Do We Live for God’s Glory?

Thomas Watson offers us seventeen ways to live for God and glorify Him:

  1. When we live to his service, and lay ourselves out wholly for God
  2. We glorify God by a frank confession of sin
  3. We glorify God by believing
  4. We glorify God, by being tender of his glory
  5. We glorify God by fruitfulness
  6. We glorify God by being contented in that state in which Providence has placed us
  7. We glorify God by working out our own salvation
  8. We glorify God by living to God
  9. We glorify God by walking cheerfully
  10. We glorify God by standing up for his truths
  11. We glorify God by praising him. Doxology, or praise, is a God-exalting work
  12. We glorify God, by being zealous for his name
  13. We glorify God, when we have an eye to God in our natural and in our civil actions
  14. We glorify God by labouring to draw others to God; by seeking to convert others, and so make them instruments of glorifying God
  15. We glorify God in a high degree when we suffer for God, and seal the gospel with our blood.
  16. We glorify God, when we give God the glory of all that we do
  17. We glorify God by a holy life

In how many ways are you glorifying God?  Which can you work to improve upon?

If you want to learn more you can read the explanation of each in Watson’s answer to the question What Is the Chief End of Man?
