How do believers glorify God in the Bible?

Michael Reid
Michael Reid,  Companion Chapel
By following His instruction the best they can willingly as opposed to grudgingly .
And when (not if) they fall short (sin) they repent . Repent means they have a change of heart .
Gods word , Gods law , Gods commandments are Gods instructions to us . They are a standard to adhere to .
If you think you know better than God , like most people do , they make up their own standard to live by . They tweak Gods words to suit their lifestyle .
When everyone makes up their own standard who’s to say who is right or wrong ? Just try telling someone who makes up what they think is the right way to conduct themselves that they are wrong . The ego that thinks they know better than God gets offended before the other person can even finish talking and its chaos .
Now take the majority of people on earth and let them make up their own standard . It would be chaos to the point of anarchy . It would be hell on earth .
If the majority of people think they knew better than God and made up their own standards then there would probably be like 152 million refugees/displaced people on earth . There would be like over 150 wars or conflicts going on . There would be like 2 out of 6 children living in active military war/conflict zones . There would be a super- power bully nation with armed military ground troops in like over 150 country’s trying to force their standard on others. The same ego-maniac super-power nation would probably lock up more of it’s own citizens per capita then any other country on the planet , and by no small margin . If the majority of people on earth think they know better than Gods standard and made up their own they would probably put money on a pedestal . They would elect political leaders that change any standard if the price is right . And there would be a global educational system that promotes standards that are morally corrupt to human nature .
Its a good thing to have Gods standard . If the people that make up their own standards aka the people that know better than God, If they were allowed into the new heaven it would be nothing more than a new hell .
Following a standard of living from the heart, set out by God , is the way people glorify God .
To know this standard means you have a working knowledge of the Bible , not a working knowledge of some super preachers book filled with catchy one liners and scripted story's .

What does the Bible mean when it says " the earth became void and without form " ?

What did the Bible mean….. When it says ' the earth became void and without form ' ?

All massoretic Text read ‘the earth became void and without form . The O.T English translates the Hebrew word pronounced ‘ hayah’ into ‘was’ for some odd reason . This misleads people right from the start of the Bible

God did not create a vast iced over wasteland . (Comp Is 45)

God created means He hand crafted polished jewel in our solar system . The only self sustaining planet hung in the perfect spot .

Earth became void and without form because as its written there was an over through . An epic event that changed and ended the world that was .

When you read the word ‘foundation’ stop and look it up in your lexicon or concordance . N.T. translates the greek word ‘katabole’ as foundation sometimes when it means ‘over-through ‘ .
