Old and new glory

All glory to him who alone is God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord. All glory, majesty, power, and authority are his before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time! Jude 1:25

Our praises do not make God more or less glorious. He doesn’t need us to feed ego, fuel power, or establish authority. Those are what happen when glory is misappropriated to human beings. Our responses to His glory reconciles us to the truth and beauty of His nature that has always been and allows each of us to uniquely participate in it, fulfilling the purpose of His creation.

Lord, glory to You!
