The word “doxa” comes from the Greek language and typically gets translated to the English word, “glory” as seen in 1 Corinthians 10:31 which says, “So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
As a church, we want the glory of God to be our greatest passion, because the glory of God is God’s greatest passion! Everything that God does, he does for the sake of his own glory; so that he can be known and praised. While God’s passion for his own glory might sound like a selfish act at first glance, the reality is that his glory is also our greatest good.
When one comes to faith in Christ, it is because their eyes have been opened to see the glory of God (Eph. 1:18) and their hearts now savor him above all things (Ps. 34:8). Similarly, as one progresses in their faith, they are transformed from one degree of glory to another not because of their own strength and determination, but by seeing and savoring more of the glory of the Lord (2 Cor. 3:18).
