Worship Song Sunday -- King of Glory, by Third Day

Who is this King of glory?
The LORD strong and mighty,
the LORD mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, you gates;
lift them up, you ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.
Who is He, this King of glory?
The LORD Almighty --
He is the King of glory. ~ Psalm 24:8-10

King of Glory, by Leslie Young Marks
Glory.  We talk and sing a lot about glory. 

God's glory. 

I've often heard, during worship songs and during sermons, God's people calling out, 'Glory, glory!' Lately, it seems as if God has been pointing me to particular Scripture verses that speak of His glory, like the one I've referenced above.  But what exactly is it? 

I'm certainly no Bible scholar or theologian, so I did a little research and came away with this from Christian preacher and author, John Piper:  "I believe the glory of God is the going public of His infinite worth.  I define the holiness of God as the infinite value of God, the infinite, intrinsic worth of God.  God's glory is the radiance of His holiness."

When we glorify God, we are publically announcing and pointing out to everyone in our sphere of influence the shining light of His glory, radiating from Him:  His incredible awesomeness, His perfect holiness, His breathtaking majesty, His amazing love, His overwhelming strength and power.  It's Who He is.  He is the King of Glory.  There is NO ONE ELSE like Him.  Let's worship our King!

Who is this King of Glory, 
With strength and majesty?
And wisdom beyond measure,
The gracious King of Kings;
The Lord of Earth and Heaven,
The Creator of all things;
Who is this King of Glory,
He's everything to me!

His Name is Jesus
Precious Jesus;
The Lord Almighty
The King of my heart
The King of Glory
