Day 04


The Image of the Invisible God

Day 05


The Name of Jesus

The heavens declare the glory of God;

the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Day after day they pour forth speech;

night after night they reveal knowledge.

They have no speech, they use no words;

no sound is heard from them.

Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,

their words to the ends of the world.

In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.

It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,

like a champion rejoicing to run his course.

It rises at one end of the heavens

and makes its circuit to the other;

nothing is deprived of its warmth.

Psalm 19:1-6


Take a moment to observe the passage.

What do you notice about what nature communicates about God? If a starry night could speak, it would only speak about how great and mighty God is. All creation, from the beautiful sunset to the awe-inspiring mountains, was made by God and for God. From the vast expanse of outer space to the beauty of a single blade of grass, God’s creation was made to point to the glory of its Creator.

  • What was a time that God’s creation led you to worship?
  • What is a situation in your life that you can declare the glory of God over in the same way that nature does?

Take a moment now to pray. Praise God for His matchless power and creativity. Thank God for creating the places in nature that we get to enjoy. Ask God to help you be moved to worship Him as you recognize that He is the one behind all of the beauty on this earth.

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty;

the whole earth is full of his glory.”

At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.

“Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.”

Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.”

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”

And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Isaiah 6:1-8


Take a moment to observe the passage.

What do you notice about the throne room of God? What do you notice about how Isaiah responded to being in the presence of God? In this passage, Isaiah gets a vision of what the throne room of God is like. In response to what Isaiah sees, he declares that he is an imperfect man in the presence of a perfect God. God shows Isaiah the only reason Isaiah can be in His presence is that He has taken away the sin and guilt from Isaiah. We recognize that no one can match God’s glory in God’s presence.

  • What would change in your walk with God if you approached him with holy reverence like Isaiah?
  • Isaiah could stand in the presence of God because His sin and guilt had been taken away. How can you confidently approach God even though we are guilty like Isaiah?

Take a moment now to pray. Praise God that there is nothing like the glory of His presence. Confess any times you have entered casually into the holy presence of God. Thank God that He has forgiven your sins, making it possible for you to enter His presence.

Moses, “Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die? What have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt?Didn’t we say to you in Egypt, ‘Leave us alone; let us serve the Egyptians’? It would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert!”

Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground. I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians so that they will go in after them. And I will gain glory through Pharaoh and all his army, through his chariots and his horsemen. The Egyptians will know that I am the Lord when I gain glory through Pharaoh, his chariots and his horsemen.”

Then the angel of God, who had been traveling in front of Israel’s army, withdrew and went behind them. The pillar of cloud also moved from in front and stood behind them, coming between the armies of Egypt and Israel. Throughout the night the cloud brought darkness to the one side and light to the other side; so neither went near the other all night long.

Then Moses stretched out his handover the sea, and all that night the Lord drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.

Exodus 14:10-22


Take a moment to observe the passage.

What do you notice about what God wanted to accomplish through saving the Israelites from Egypt? The Exodus was an actual historical event where God miraculously delivered the Israelites from slavery. While Pharaoh and Moses had their agendas, God was orchestrating His agenda. God’s plan for all of history is that He would get the glory. Just like every event in the Exodus story was so that people would know that He alone is God, everything in history is for the fame of the name of God.

  • What is one event in your life where you could see the larger story God was writing?
  • If God is writing a grand story of His glory, what could you do to help align your life with His story?

Take a moment now to pray. Praise God that He is writing a beautiful story of grace and redemption for His glory. Thank God for how He is authoring your story. Ask God to help you live for the story that matters in your everyday life.

The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation—if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.

Colossians 1:15-23


Take a moment to observe the passage.

What do you notice about who Jesus is? What do you notice about the authority and power he possesses? Jesus was the physical embodiment of the fullness of God. Through His kingly authority, Jesus created and ruled the universe. In the same way, Jesus created and ruled the church and all who call themselves His followers. Jesus, as the King of Glory, deserves all of the honor and worship.

  • How does it make you feel knowing that Jesus is seated on the throne, reigning as the King of Glory?
  • If you claim Jesus as your king, what is an area of your life that needs to change under His rule?

Take a moment now to pray. Praise Jesus that He is the king of the whole universe and the church. Thank God that He is a king who chooses not to overpower us but to love us. Ask God to be the king of every aspect of your life.

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

Who, being in very nature God,

did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;

rather, he made himself nothing

by taking the very nature of a servant,

being made in human likeness.

And being found in appearance as a man,

he humbled himself

by becoming obedient to death—

even death on a cross!

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place

and gave him the name that is above every name,

that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,

in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,

to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:5 -11


Take a moment to observe the passage.

What do you notice about Jesus’ posture? These verses are probably not the picture of glory you were expecting; the gruesome and tragic death of Jesus on the cross is not the world’s idea of glory. We think of glory as beauty, power, and majesty. While accurate, this is an incomplete picture of glory; Philippians 2 offers the rest of the story. In these verses, we see Jesus’ ultimate glory in heaven is possible because He created glory in the lowest place – the cross. Because of the lowest glory of the cross, Jesus can invite us into glory with Him.

How does the cross’s glory change how you interact with God?
How does the cross’s glory change how you live in the world?

Take a moment now to pray. Confess the times that you have not humbled yourself as Jesus did. Thank God for creating glory in the lowest place – the cross. Ask God to help you find glory in the low places in your life.

For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.

So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

2 Corinthians 5:14-21


Take a moment to observe the passage.

What does the passage say about Jesus? What does the passage say about you? In the first few pages of your Bible, Genesis 1 explains that each person is made in God’s image, and when Christ died on the cross for us, our sin is no longer counted against us. When we accept this gift, we agree to be ambassadors for Christ in the world—image-bearers. As we bear His image, we are to reflect His glory, character, and nature to the world.

What does it look like for God’s love to fuel how you reflect His glory?
What is one characteristic of God that you want to reflect in the world around you?

Take a moment now to pray. Confess the times that you have not reflected God’s nature to the world around you. Thank God that His nature is good and that you get to be a reflection of it. Ask God to help you reflect His glory in each moment, each conversation, and each day.

After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice:

“Salvation belongs to our God,

who sits on the throne,

and to the Lamb.”

All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying:


Praise and glory

and wisdom and thanks and honor

and power and strength

be to our God for ever and ever.


Then one of the elders asked me, “These in white robes—who are they, and where did they come from?”

I answered, “Sir, you know.”

And he said, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore,

“they are before the throne of God

and serve him day and night in his temple;

and he who sits on the throne

will shelter them with his presence.

‘Never again will they hunger;

never again will they thirst.

The sun will not beat down on them,’

nor any scorching heat.

For the Lamb at the center of the throne

will be their shepherd;

‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’

‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’”

Revelation 7:9-17


Take a moment to observe the passage.

What do you notice about the focus of heaven? It’s hard to imagine the picture these verses paint; if they feel “otherworldly,” it’s because they are. The glory of heaven is unlike any glory that we can imagine here on earth. There will be no pain, tears, discomfort, fear, and disappointment, only the worship of the Lamb who made a way for us to be there. Heaven is the apex of glory where God will receive worship from everyone and everything for all of eternity.

  • Is there an area of your life that you have not been living with an eternal focus?
  • What would change in your life if you were to live with the glory of heaven in mind?

Take a moment now to pray. Confess the times that you’ve forgotten to live with an eternal mindset. Praise God that He is worthy of all worship for all time. Thank God that because of Jesus, we will get to join in this future glory of heaven. Ask God to help you remember heaven’s coming glory and live accordingly.
