*What is God’s glory?
(Review God’s Attributes)
*Why give God glory?
*How do we give God
glory?
*When do we give it?
Last time we discussed:
What is God’s glory?

http://ts1.mm.bing.net/th?id=H.4608071654639991&pid=1.7
We found that there are
two aspects to God’s glory.
One aspect is the glory
that He has in Himself.
His intrinsic glory.

So God has intrinsic glory.
This is the glory of His
very nature.
What is this intrinsic
glory?
God’s intrinsic glory is the
manifestation of the
combination of
all of His attributes!

http://ts3.mm.bing.net/th?id=H.45...
Since God's glory is the
combination of all of His
attributes, what are some
of those attributes?

We glorify God by
rehearsing His attributes.

To glorify God is to extol
(to praise enthusiastically)
His attributes.
