God’s Glorifying Is Creative; Ours Only Declarative

Moai Stargazing at Ahu Tongariki, Easter Island

Hugh Binning, Works, p. 5:

But you may ask, What is it to glorify God? Doth our goodness extend to him? Or is it an advantage to the Almighty that we are righteous? No indeed! And herein is the vast difference between God’s glorifying of us and sanctifying of us, and our glorifying and sanctifying of him. God “calls things that are not,” and makes them to be: but we can do no more but call things that are, and that far below what they are. God’s glorifying is creative, – ours only declarative. He makes us such, – we do no more but declare him to be such.
