The Glory of God, Part 2

As Christians, we praise God for His glory—but what exactly is God’s glory? Last week we identified it as His substance, His physical manifestation dwelling with His people, and studied the consequence of disrespecting His it. In part 2 of our series on God’s glory, we take a look at a healthy fear of and love for it. 

King David maintained reverent respect for the Lord’s presence. He brought the Ark of the Covenant, where God’s presence resided, to Jerusalem, hoping to make the capital of Israel the Lord’s dwelling place forever. God’s punishment for an Israelite’s mishandling of the Ark and His blessing of the family in whose home the Ark temporarily stayed provided Israel a memorable lesson in addressing our holy God.

Later, David wanted to build a house—the Temple—for the Lord’s presence. That desire was fulfilled but not in the way David intended. Enrich your understanding of God’s glory and His desire to dwell with humanity as you look at His interactions with David in this week’s show!

Apples of Gold: Unholy Fire

When Zvi came home from serving in the army, he and his family visited a town where they were burning books. He noticed New Testament Bibles in the fire. He asked why they were burning Holy Scriptures, and they proclaimed it was filled with lies. Brokenhearted, Zvi took one out of the fire and read to them from Hebrews 11 and other Scriptures. The people listened to the truth of God’s Word, and God changed a rabbi’s heart through Zvi’s bold faith.
