There are many different ways to glorify God, depending on your background and lifestyle. There are various ways to worship Him; but it will be better if you do it humbly, not being seen when serving others, being generous and living one-on-one.
Step 1. Begin to glorify God with deep fear and reverence:
Fear made him angry, "Let all the earth fear the LORD, let all the inhabitants of the world fear him." From the Psalms (Psalm 33:8)
Step 2. Realize that “glory, praise, fame, distinction” are words that are synonymous with “glory”
Sing about God's ways to glorify Him. "They will sing about the ways of the LORD, for the glory of the LORD is great." (Psalm 138:5)
Step 3. Glorify God through acts of “love”, for example, on the day of judgment they will ask:
“When did we see you as a stranger, and we gave you a ride, or naked and we clothed you? When did we see You sick or in prison and we visited You?”
And the King will answer them, "Truly I say to you, whatever you did to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did to me."
Method 1 of 3: Worshiping God
Step 1. Worship Him wherever you are
You can use some or all of a room in your home as a place to pray and worship Him. For example, you don't have to force yourself to go to worship God with other people. But you may be able to do it more often at home, either alone or with other people. You can place candles, incense, and pictures or statues of important spiritual figures in your faith, if any.
- You can change the objects of your faith in this prayer room, depending on your beliefs. On the other hand, if you are not a follower of a religion, you can choose significant objects that have meaning to you to be placed on the altar.
- Praying at home can be a good habit to apply the habit of praying properly. You can use your prayer room for daily prayers or meditation.
Step 2. Have a meeting in the prayer room
Invite your acquaintances to share, and have heart-to-heart talks with fellow believers. Praying and worshiping with others can magnify your sense of wonder. Amazement is a feeling of our smallness as humans in the face of the greatness of a meaning, purpose, manifestation, or presence.
- People who experience a sense of wonder at creation are more likely to help others and work in groups for the common good.
- Many of the offerings have inspiring and admirable art and teachings. Often these places contain and teach symbols of faith as symbols of important doctrine. Also, as a symbol of togetherness with others in the place.
Step 3. Practice the habit of prayer and meditation
Prayer and meditation can help you to calm negative emotions. Prayer can also be done as social support that may not be visible but can reinforce a positive self-image.
- If you are trying to get into the habit of praying, pray anywhere and anytime. Find a quiet place and time to talk about worries and things in life for which you are grateful with God.
- Consider keeping a prayer journal. You can sort out the emotional pain you are feeling in your life and orient yourself towards the things that matter to you. Studies show that patients suffering from severe illness benefit greatly physically and emotionally, by writing down difficulties and other unpleasant experiences in a journal.
- Practice regular habits of prayer, meditation, and spiritual sensitivity. To do this, you need to calm down and concentrate on stopping the random thoughts that are popping up. Center your mind and make a connection with a greater form of presence.
Method 2 of 3: Serving Others
Step 1. Do small but useful things for others voluntarily, not to seek attention
In your daily life, you can glorify God by doing good deeds for others in a simpler way. In addition, helping others can increase your appreciation, enjoyment, enlightenment, and overall quality of life. Turn the small, nice things you do for other people into things that are new to you. How can you put the needs of others in the same place as your own, and avoid holding back minor desires and grievances to live humbly inside and out, to worship others and God?
- Be patient and let the car drive into the heavy traffic, and drive slowly, not suddenly.
- Make food for a hungry person, not just a friend or family member.
- Smile, not proudly, but kindly as if opening the door for someone else.
- Be a productive coworker and considerate, not arrogant.
- Give clothes or other necessities to people who really need them.
Step 2. Volunteer in an organization or group that helps others
Take the time to see if you find a suitable place. Check for jobs that match your interests. You might want to try a local church or charity, or use the Yellow Pages and search under “Volunteer Centers” or “Volunteer Organizations”, or online at Volunteermatch.org and 1-800-volunteer.org to find volunteer work. in the area around you. You may consider the following types of volunteer work:
- Teaching or volunteering at school
- Become a translator for immigrants, if you can speak another foreign language
- Coaching a team, if you exercise
- Work and clean up local parks or wildlife shelters
- Work at a local hospital, nursing home, or clinic
- Call people from home and offer them to be a fundraiser
Step 3. Don't become overly committed to doing volunteer work
Being overly committed to helping others will stress you out and hurt your own ability to serve others well. You need to believe that you want to be able to do good things for other people with a good attitude too. Take the time to consider whether you have the time to do it, before committing to it.
- If you're already committed, you can try to get some of the work done and then put in another effort. Talk openly about what you think. Others will understand that each individual is busy and they will respect you if you talk about it honestly with them.
- Never be afraid to re-volunteer in the same organization, when you have had time to re-commit as a volunteer. Come back to the volunteer work, if you feel like it.
Step 4. Ask someone to do some volunteer work with you
Doing it with other people often provides the motivation you need to get your work done. In addition, you can take advantage of this moment to familiarize yourself with new people you may meet through this work experience.
Consider doing volunteer work with your family or partner. This can give you a good perspective on your relationship and can create a sense of purpose outside of you
Method 3 of 3: Be Humble
Step 1. Accept the opportunities and limitations that lie within you
Be proactive about who you are and what you can do about yourself. The fewer things you have to prove to others, the more you can do to glorify God. When you have a conflict with another person, know what your responsibilities are. Knowing your flaws and accepting them will allow you to learn from them and grow. This kind of attitude will help foster strong social bonds.
- For example, if your friend is mad at you because you're late, don't get defensive. Tell them, "I'm sorry, I'll pay more attention to my time."
- Seeing and accepting the problem will make the problem less scary than possible to deal with. These positive behaviors can help you to make positive changes to your habits.
Step 2. Give forgiveness and grace more than what the other person deserves, more than what you want the other person or God to give you
Accept it and don't dwell on your faults or those of others. However, concentrate on the specific things you can do to give God's grace and improve your life in more concrete ways, when you have the opportunity to do so.
Step 3. Don't think too much about yourself
Strengthen yourself with kindness, truth, humility, grace and serenity. Do not deceive or cheat but love the achievements and good behavior of others. Not worrying too much about yourself makes a person better in relationships with other people. Prioritizing the interests of others and not demanding self-perfection, is also a form of service to God through His creation.
Step 4. Show that you are grateful
Gratitude creates a feeling that you benefit both from other people, as well as from their behavior and words. As you become more aware of your dependence on others, thank that person and accept their meaning in your life. Share the hope, peace and more you have. You will be more aware that you are not everything.
Write an appreciation journal. This habit will improve your psychological side. Write down at least three things you are grateful for, and do them every day
Step 5. Encourage others to share and do your part to be selfless
Be open to self-improvement and share reinforcement with others, not by coercion, demands, or domination over others. When you're not the center of attention, you can work to encourage others. Avoid preferential treatment. Strengthening others creates stronger communities, which can work for the good of others. You can be a great leader if you know effective ways to cultivate a sense of accomplishment in others.
Some people have had significant influence and during their lifetimes have become great spiritual leaders, such as Buddha, Gandhi, Jesus Christ, Martin Luther King and the Prophet Muhammad
Step 6. Avoid acting like you expect to be rewarded, praised and showered with thanks for what you do
This means that a person indicates that he deserves something for the good he has done. A person will eventually get angry and hurt when he feels he deserves something but doesn't get it. It is difficult to love others and have good manners when someone is feeling hurt, because that person will fixate on the things they don't have.
If you feel you don't owe others, you can work more freely for others without expecting anything in return
Step 7. Practice the habit of serving others, helping the weak, and not looking for or caring for an impression or unreal reality, “upward mobility” or lies like “what will benefit a person, if he gains the World but loses his soul alone?
"Don't worry about your mistakes, but make them temporary and move on with your progress. Instead of cultivating and spreading feelings of irritation, try not to worry too much about yourself and keep up the good work. So concentrate on the bigger picture and help one another through service – and glorify God by serving both the common man and the poor.
Step 8. Always assume that you don't have all the answers
Often people who are humble are more tolerant of others. Humble people don't need to be aggressive or defensive about their beliefs. Being patient and listening to the ideas and beliefs of others, even when you are having a hard time, allows you to glorify God through peace and kindness. You will become stronger and you will be able to study God and yourself more deeply.
Step 9. Allow peace and goodness to happen, no matter if they may be incomprehensible or occur beyond your control
Seek God's way again by working in volunteer communities either on your own or in groups such as in places of worship
Step 10. Appreciate and recognize that other people's knowledge of beliefs is different, either to a greater or lesser extent, from your experiences, accomplishments, skills, and studies
- Glorify God by rewarding faith and good behavior with flexibility and sincere condolences to grief and congratulations for joyful moments.
- Honor God by acknowledging the efforts of others, by accepting who and what they can do, and enjoying time spent in company with others.
According to Joshua the leader of Israel after Moses: “Joshua said to Achan, 'My son, honor the LORD God of Israel, and confess before him; tell me what you do, don't hide it from me." (Joshua 7:19) Young's Literal Translation
- Don't praise yourself. “Jesus answered: 'If I glorify myself, my glory means nothing. It is my Father who glorifies Me, of whom you say: He is our God.'” (John 8:54)
- "Truly I say to you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me either." Disrespect for God includes choosing personally not to give opportunity, kindness, and forgiveness; does not assist in the needs of clothing, shelter, transportation, food, and health matters.
But God grants grace for your forgiveness, depending on how you accept God's plan to do redemption and save mankind
- It is narrated in the Bible that when Jesus healed a man who was blind from birth, the Pharisees tried not to think of Jesus but still seemed to worship God.
- “Then they called again the man who had been blind and said to him: 'Speak the truth before God; we know that person is a sinner. '" (John 9:24)." They kept forcing him to confess, but the previously blind beggar chose the truth to “glorify” God, and he replied,
- Whether the man was a sinner, I do not know; but one thing I know, that I was blind, and now can see." (John 9:25)
