Day Four: Glimpse of the Greatness of God

Malachi 1:11 (NIV)“My name will be great among the nations, from where the sun rises to where it sets…” says the LORD Almighty.

2 Corinthians 3:18 (NIV)“And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”

“When you get a glimpse of the greatness of God, when you gain a proper perspective of who Christ is and what Christ has done for you, you’ll never again play games with God. When we see Christ as the image of God, clearly presented to us as worthy of worship and praise, we must respond with loving worship and heartfelt obedience. And because of Christ, we are able to offer these sacrifices from a pure heart.” [Fries, Rummage, & Gallaty in “Exalting Jesus in…Malachi”]

All of me. In Christ. As wholehearted reverence for God’s majesty & greatness, lived as our whole-life response to his unfailing love, the “I have loved you” love. As we seek to live authentically in worship, together as his church loving God and loving others, this is how God’s name becomes great among the nations…beyond the borders of just us.

Prayer: Lord, open the eyes of our hearts to get a glimpse of your greatness day in and day out. And transform us to be the church that images you in every way. In Jesus’ name, amen.
