Romans 1:20-25 “For since the creation of the world, God invisible -- His achievements, eternal power and divine nature -- has been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse [Psalm 19:1-3]. For although they knew about God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to Him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served created things rather than the Creator -- who is forever praised…”

Glory in The Idolatry Of Greed
Psalm 49:12-17 “But man, despite his riches, does not endure; he is like the beasts that perish. This is the fate of those who trust in themselves, and of their followers, who approve their sayings. Like sheep they are destined for the grave, and death will be their shepherd. The upright will rule over them in the morning; their forms will decay in the grave, so that they have no habitation. But God will redeem my life from the grave; He will surely take me to Himself. Do not be overawed when the glory of a man's house increases; for he will take nothing with him when he dies, his glory will not descend with him.”
James 1:10-11 “Now let the humble brother be glorying in his exaltation, and the rich in his humiliation, because riches last no longer than the flowers in the grass; the scorching sun comes up, and the grass withers, the flower falls; the beauty of its aspect disappears. The rich man in his goings shall likewise fade.”

We are the clay, you are the Potter; we are all the work of Your hand.”

Choose Your Facial Glory…
II Corinthians 3:7-13 “Now if the ministry that brought death, which was engraved in letters on stone, came with glory, so that the Israelites could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of its glory, fading though it was, will not the ministry of the Spirit be even more glorious? If the ministry that condemns men is glorious, how much more glorious is the ministry that brings righteousness! For what was glorious has no glory now in comparison with the surpassing glory. And if what was fading away came with glory, how much greater is the glory of that which lasts! Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold. We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face to keep the Israelites from gazing at it while the radiance was fading away.”
Galatians 3:1-3,10 “You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by observing the Law, or by believing what you heard? Are you so foolish, after beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort? … All who rely on observing the law are under a curse, for it is written: Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.

And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, The Lord, the Lord God, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet He does not leave the guilty/wicked unpunished; He punishes the children and their children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generations. Moses bowed to the ground at once and worshipped.”
John 12:28 “Jesus prayed, Father, glorify Your name! A voice, then, came from heaven, I glorify also, and shall be glorifying it again. The crowd that was there and heard it said it had thundered; others said an angel had spoken to him. Jesus said, This voice was for your benefit, not mine.”

Colossians 3:1-6 “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, be disposed to things which are above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. Put to death, therefore, your members that are on the earth: prostitution, uncleanness, lust, evil desires/passions and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the indignation of God is coming.”

Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose and has given us the Spirit as a guarantee for what is to come.”
I Peter 1:23-25 “For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.

Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
