How To Glorify GOD

In Matthew chapter 5, Jesus spoke the following in the midst of His Sermon on the mount:

14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.

15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.

16 Let your light so shine before men, (in such a way) that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

We are called to do good works which reflect FATHER in us rather than to exalt ourselves in the eyes of men.  This is the essence of being fruitful on behalf of Our Heavenly Father.  In John chapter 10, Jesus referenced His good works:

31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him.

32 Jesus answered them, “Many good works I have shown you from My Father. For which of those works do you stone Me?”

What good works did He speak of?  When asked of John the Baptist’s disciples, Jesus responded in Matthew chapter 11:

2 And when John had heard in prison about the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples

3 and said to Him, “Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?”

4 Jesus answered and said to them, “Go and tell John the things which you hear and see:

5 The blind see and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them.

6 And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.”

Aren’t we meant to do similar good works which glorify Our Heavenly Father?  Jesus clearly stated what good works should be referred to in assuring John that He was the “Coming One” and they needed to look no further.  It is also clear that when Jesus preached, He gave FATHER the glory for the good works He performed as we see in Matthew chapter 9:

1 So He got into a boat, crossed over, and came to His own city.

2 Then behold, they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you.”

3 And at once some of the scribes said within themselves, “This Man blasphemes!”

4 But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, “Why do you think evil in your hearts?

5 For which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Arise and walk’?

6 But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins”—then He said to the paralytic, “Arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.”

7 And he arose and departed to his house.

8 Now when the multitudes saw it, they marveled and glorified God, who had given such power to men.

Jesus has given us a key of letting our light shine and  to bring people to the point of glorifying Our Heavenly Father.  It is by us operating in the supernatural power and authority given to us by FATHER.  The Holy Spirit is within us and the potential to operate in this power and authority is awaiting our realization and revelation that we are meant to walk according to this power (the feminine aspect as our Brother wrote this weekend).  FATHER isn’t reluctant to allow this flow to go forth, we must diligently seek The Kingdom of GOD and HIS righteousness thus allowing the flow to occur through us, not just to us.
