Doxology

 1.5.11

Katie Lloyd Photography


After all this wonderful banquet, in which we have been feasting on the Word of God, I know that we can be sure of at least two things:

1. We still have a long way to go, we still have so much to learn, to grow, to change; and it is only through the help of the Holy Spirit that we will. After all, if we have been called to eternal life, we are Daily On Our Way to Heaven...

2. We are not in darkness, we have the Word of God to enlighten our paths, and this should make us praise God every day, every hour, every minute.

In his commentary to the epistle to the Philippians, John MacArthur writes what is exactly in my heart for each one of us as we end this series of Doctrines in the Kitchen.

"Paul began the concluding portion of Philippians with a doxology. The English word "doxology" comes from two Greek words, doxa ("glory") and logos ("word"). Thus a doxology is a word about glory; it is an outburst of praise and adoration that honors and ascribes glory to God.

Doxologies in Scripture are fitting responses to doctrinal truth... 

True worship flows from divine truth...

A doxology is also an appropriate response to all that God has done for believers..."

So, my dear friends and sisters, let our mouth sing praises to God today!


"To our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen." 
Phil. 4:20


"Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! 
How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!

“For who has known the mind of the Lord,
or who has been his counselor?”
“Or who has given a gift to him
that he might be repaid?”

For from him and through him and to him are all things. 
To him be glory forever. Amen." 
Romans 11: 33- 36 ESV


"Now to him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery that was kept secret for long ages but has now been disclosed and through the prophetic writings has been made known to all nations, 
according to the command of the eternal God, 
to bring about the obedience of faith— 
to the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! 
Amen." 
Rom. 16: 25-27 ESV


"Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, 
according to the power at work within us, 
to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, 
forever and ever. 
Amen." 
Eph. 3: 20-21 ESV


"Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling 
and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, 
to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, 
be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, 
before all time and now and forever. Amen."
Jude 24-25 ESV


Soli Deo Gloria

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
