Soli Deo Gloria
Soli Deo Gloria (To God Alone Glory.) is the celebration of the other four solas that paint a picture the biblical doctrine of salvation. Since God is the full source of salvation for sinners, it follows that He be the sole object of praise and worship for saved sinners.
Man desires nothing but the righteous wrath of God, which means that he is does not deserve an ounce of the glory of salvation. The glory is God’s alone.
Soli Deo Gloria: the belief that the God alone deserves the glory; God alone is worthy to be worshiped and praised.
Why was this important?
In Romans chapter 1, Paul explains that sin is the exchanging of the Glory of God for the glory of creation. If God alone deserves glory we give it to another, we are stealing from the almighty and reserving for ourselves His wrath. The people who have received the Grace of God, by Faith in Christ, must worship and honor God alone.
How does it affect us now?
"Whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God." (1 Corinthians 10:31) The glory of God is the goal of every Christian. We should seek to live a life of praise and worship to the most high.
