Giving God the Glory

March 23rd, 2008

“…because he did not give God the glory…”

(Acts of the Apostles 12:23)

The events leading up to the death of Herod Agrippa I, as depicted in Acts 12:20-24, comprise a study in glory. Even today, there are still but two choices: personal insurrection or Jesus’ resurrection.

I. Acts 12:20 – glory is always ____________________.

II. Acts 12:21 – glory is about who’s on the __________.

III. Acts 12:22 – glory deserves a ___________________.

IV. Acts 12:23 – glory rightly belongs to _____________.

“Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day / Earth’s joys grow dim, its glories pass away / Change and decay in all around I see / O Thou who changest not, abide with me” (Abide With Me, Alfred Tennyson).

Acts 12:24 suggests that the word of God is primary; Herodian glory transitory. Now, glory demands a response.
