Lecture 6, Soli Deo Gloria: Glorifying God in Everything:
In 1 Corinthians 10:31, Paul says, “Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” Do you find yourself divorcing your “religious life” from your “normal life”? Paul’s exhortation makes this condition impossible, for every thought, word, and deed contributes to the Christian task of glorifying God. The Reformers of the sixteenth and seventeenth century knew this principle well, for they recovered it with much struggle from the Roman Catholic Church. Soli Deo Gloria, “the glory of God alone,” drove them in every area of life, and they find this call a privilege bestowed on them by the grace of God through our precious Lord, Jesus.
