“The Glory of God”
from the series How Great Is Our God!
2 Chronicles 26; Isaiah 42:5–8
If the human race were suddenly struck blind, the sun would continue to shine by day and the moon by night. If we were suddenly struck deaf, birds would continue to sing and brooks to babble. And if we were suddenly struck with the “disease” of atheism, God would continue to exist in His resplendent glory. Our belief or disbelief in God adds nothing to nor takes anything away from His glory, any more than our sight or hearing commands the sun and the birds. But if we were suddenly struck by disobedience and self-conceit to steal God's glory, even then He would remain undiminished. God's glory is His and His alone, and with no other does He share it.
