• Here We Stand for the Glory of God Alone Media Resource by

    Romans 11:36

    The driving concern of God in creation and redemption is to bring glory to Himself by saving a people who will serve Him and declare His magnificence around the world. Our theology, therefore, must be focused first and foremost on the glory of God in all His character and works. In this message, Dr. Steven Lawson considers the doctrine of soli Deo gloria, looking to Scripture to explain what it means to glorify God and showing that the Lord’s chief goal in all that He does is His own glory.
