We get confused about glory. You will hear someone say, “Wouldn’t it be wonderful if so-and-so, this famous athlete, became a Christian? Then God would get lots of glory.” I think that is very true: God does get glory, and he gets praise every time someone becomes a Christian. If someone famous becomes a Christian, then the possibility of other people turning to Christ increases. That’s good. But it’s almost as if we want God to be famous!
