How to Give Glory to God [Luke 2:14 Daily Devotional]

“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

Luke 2:14

This quote comes from the “heavenly host,” which is just another way to say a group of angels. These were the ones who were announcing Jesus’s birth to those who would listen. What they were offering weren’t just kind words and well wishes, but rather they were offering peace to weary souls. Through his angels, God announced his divine plan of ushering in peace and favor through his kingdom coming to earth. The only reasonable response to this is what the angels say at first, “Glory to God.”

How to Give Glory to God

You can give glory to God by accepting the peace and favor he’s brought in. When you pray and worship Jesus, you’re doing just that. When you serve God’s church, you’re giving glory to God. Even when you give to your church and participate rather than spectate, you are giving glory to God.

The main point here, though, is that giving glory to God can be about what you say and what you do. Your goal should be to make those two things match. If you say you’re a generous person, be a generous person. If you say you love God, serve his bride, the church. It’s in that consistency that you truly give glory to God, and it’s seen by the people around you.


God, I give you glory. Help me to be consistent in what I say and what I do. Give me the courage and the mindfulness to be a good witness to you and your goodness. It’s in Jesus’s name I pray, amen.
