Laus Deo (Glory to God)

Laus Deo (Glory to God)

‘For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.’ 
Romans 11:36

Suggested Further Reading: 
1 Corinthians 10:31–11:1

The apostle puts his pen back into the ink bottle and falls on his knees—he cannot help it—he must have a doxology. 
‘To whom be glory for ever. Amen.’

 Beloved, let us imitate this devotion. 
I think that this sentence should be the prayer, the motto for every one of us—‘To whom be glory for ever. Amen.’ 

This should be the single desire of the Christian. 
I take it that he should not have twenty wishes but only one. 
He may desire to see his family well brought up, but only that ‘To God may be glory for ever.’

 He may wish for prosperity in his business, but only so far as it may help him to promote this—‘To whom be glory for ever.’ 

He may desire to attain more gifts and more graces, but it should only be that ‘To him may be glory for ever.’ 
This one thing I know, Christian, you are not acting as you ought to do when you are moved by any other motive than the one motive of your Lord’s glory. 

As a Christian, you are ‘of him, and through him;’ 
I pray you be ‘to him.’ Let nothing ever set your heart beating but love to him.

 Let this ambition fire your soul; be this the foundation of every enterprise upon which you enter, and this your sustaining motive whenever your zeal would grow cold—only make God your object. 

Depend upon it, where self begins, sorrow begins; 
but if God be my supreme delight and only object,

‘To me ’tis equal whether love ordain
My life or death—appoint me ease or pain.’

To me there shall be no choice, when my eye singly looks to God’s glory.

For meditation:

 If some of us were given one wish, it would not be a patch on the single-minded desires expressed by God’s people in the Bible, such as David (Psalm 27:4), Asaph (Psalm 73:25) 
and Paul (Philippians 3:8–10, 13–15). 
What would your wish be? 
Could you pray for it with a clear conscience?

Sermon no. 572
29 May (1864)

 If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ,

you can be accepted into his kingdom. 

I invite you to let him to make of you,

what He always wanted. 

Marvelous God Almighty, 
I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, who died for me to make me free of sin,
 I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free. 
 I confess that He is the son of God.
 I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, 
not only to live on this earth, 
but to be expectant of my life in heaven. 
In the precious name of Jesus I ask.

 “The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon
 must lie, not in its fashion and manner, 
but in the truth which it contains.”.... 
 Reflection and inspiration from the 
"Prince of Preachers,"
 Charles Haddon Spurgeon
The purpose of these pages is to share the precious word of God, 
 without acquiring any monetary reward.
 God gave me the salvation for free, 
so I share the gospel of his word the same way .. 
 ♥♥♥ Blessings to all of You, 
rejoice in the sublime and infallible word of God ♥♥♥ 

 Father, I ask You to bless my friends, 
relatives and those that I care deeply for, 
who are reading this right now.
 Show them a new revelation of Your love and power. 
 Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment.
 Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy.. 
Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace. 
 Where there is need, I ask you to fulfill their needs. 
 Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings. Amen.
