I can't have a chink in my chain.

How do we glorify God?

How/Why does it happen?

God is glorified when we bear fruit of obedience. We obey when we love Him. When we are forgiven (much), we love (much).

Our love for God will be proportionate to our realization of our forgiveness in Christ. (Luke 7:41-43, 47)

If you are in Christ, you have been forgiven far more than ever you could imagine. Yet, it's easy to forget that and our faith shifts from Christ to ourselves.
“For Luke, true faith is what happens when someone looks at Jesus and discovers God’s forgiveness; and the sign and proof of this faith is love.” ~N.T. Wright, Luke

Gunny’s golden chain to glory:
Forgiveness --> Love --> Obedience --> Glory

Ergo ... Let the Spirit illumine the Word that you might see your sin in light of God's holiness. The magnitude of your forgiveness is revealed at the cross. Channel your forgiveness into love for Christ. Channel your love for Him into obedience, that God would be glorified.

I think it proper for each Christian - because of his sinfulness and need for forgiveness - to consider himself the weakest link in any chain that God builds.
