He's Shouting: I AM GLORIOUS!

The glory of God is the manifest beauty of His holiness.
It's the going public of His holiness.
It's the way He puts His holiness on display for people to apprehend.

The heavens are telling of the glory of God.
What does that mean?
It means He's shouting at us.
He shouts with clouds.
He shouts with blue expanse.
He shouts with gold on the horizons.
He shouts with galaxies and stars.
He's shouting: I AM GLORIOUS!

Open your eyes.
Do you see it?
Do you love it?
You were made for this.
You were made for this! 
This is why I exist to see that.

Everything is pointing to that.
All the glory that I thought was so attractive is going there.
This is all husks and ashes.

Now we see through a glass darkly then face-to-face.

This light and momentary affliction is working for us an eternal weight of what?

Are you glad that you exist to display the glory of God?
God is aiming that we see and savor and treasure His glory.
The riches of His glory.

So I ask:  Do you see it?  Do you love it?
I say it again:  You were made for this!

This is from a sermon clip at the end of the song, "The Glory of God," by Matt Papa.  Check out this album here.
