“I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house. And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.”
Mark 2:11-12 KJV
There is power in giving glory to God! Whenever God does something notable in your life, magnify His mighty name and ascribe all glory to Him (Psalm 96:8). As we see in our text today, an outstanding miracle was performed by Jesus on the man sick with a palsy, and all the people who witnessed this mighty miracle, ascribed glory to God, as this kind of miracle had never been seen.
This is the attitude we should have. We ought not to keep our testimonies. When God does something for you, shout it on the mountaintop! Let every one know, so that the glory can go to God.
However, we need to go beyond glorifying Him for what He has done. There is a higher level where we ascribe all glory to Him for who He is. When you consider how great He is and all His creation and the works of His hand, you cannot help but give Him Glory. He is worthy to receive all glory and praise. Therefore, spend time to meditate on who He is daily and you cannot help but give Him glory. With a loud voice, magnify the Lord for all the things He has done in your life now. Glory to God!

Not long ago, almost every person in Switzerland would have been a Christian. Today, around one in seven considers himself non-religious. Muslims account for as much as 6%, with many other religions appearing and growing rapidly. Most Swiss Christians are ill equipped to handle these changes.
Y: We are praying for the non-religious, that they will have encounters that will lead them to Christ.
