Glory of God

here is a message from John Piper about why he finds the Glory of God to be the central point of the Bible and all creation.

fascinating stuff.  the intro:

How does the Bible orient us around the glory of God?

I’m just overwhelmed, and have been for 40 years, with the centrality in the Bible of the glory of God.

It is presented to us pervasively as the goal of all existence.

  • We were created for the glory of God (Isaiah 43:7).
  • “Whatever you do, whether you eat or drink, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31).

So it should be pervasive, right down to whether I just took that last swig of water for the glory of God. And here’s another one. [Drinks another sip of water.] So thank you, Father, for this. Please sustain my throat.

It’s amazing how pervasive in the Bible is the language of the glory of God.
