Some interesting thoughts on glory here. Is God’s main goal to get glory through creation and/or through us? Or is it to share his glory? Much of this links to the questions “who is God?” and “who are we in him?” Our understanding of this issue affects the way we understand our God and inevitably it affects the way we live as Christians — our perception of our relationship with God and our heart position toward him.
Did God create us to love and glorify himself because he had some inherent need or void to fill? Or did he create us in order to invite us into the love and glory he already had from eternity?
