What is the glory of God? It is who God is. It is His nature, His character, and His power.
Where is the glory of God? Just look around. Everything created by God reflects His glory in some way. We see it everywhere, from the most microscopic form of life to the vast Mikey Way, from sunsets and stars to storms and seasons. Creation reveals our Creator’s glory. You can learn a lot about God’s character just by looking around. Through nature we learn that God is powerful, that He enjoys variety, loves beauty, is organized, and is wise and creative.
…Throughout history, God has revealed His glory to people in different settings. But God’s clearest picture of what He is like is seen in His Son, Jesus Christ. The Bible says, “In the past God spoke through the prophets many times and in many different ways. But now… has spoken to us through His Son… The Son reflects the glory of God and shows exactly what God is like.” (Hebrews 1:1-3 NCV)
