Quote from: Pete on June 11, 2009, 09:25:48 amWe've all read and heard that God is a jealous God, and that He does not share His glory with anyone else. But is that really an accurate statement?Consider this passage of scripture;Judges 7:20 (AMP)And the three companies blew the trumpets and shattered the pitchers, holding the torches in their left hands, and in their right hands the trumpets to blow [leaving no chance to use swords], and they cried, The sword for the Lord and Gideon!When Gideon obeyed what God told him to do, he shared in the glory of overtaking the Midianites. His name was mentioned right alongside the Lord.We used this example in church last night; Think about when your kids do something outstanding. Not only do they get recognition, but you do as well. People come up to you and tell you what a great job you've done raising your kids. It blesses them, it blesses you, and everyone shares in the glory.I believe it is that way with our Father. When we follow the example set forth by Jesus and we do something outstanding, people should SEE the Father in us. .
