These are all taken from Thomas Watson’s Body of Divinity, which is an exposition of the Westminster Shorter Catechism. Under #1 he has 3 sub-points, which I have listed as A, B, and C.
 It is glorifying God when we aim purely at his glory. It is one thing to advance God’s glory, another thing to aim at it. God must be the ultimate end of all actions…We do this,
A:When we prefer God’s glory above all things.
B: We aim at God’s glory, when we are content that God’s will should take place, though it may cross ours.
C: We aim at God’s glory when we are content to be outshined by others in gifts and esteem—so that his glory may be increased.
 We glorify God by a sincere confession of sin…A humble confession exalts God. How is God’s free grace magnified, in crowning those who deserve to be condemned! The excusing and mincing of sin casts a reproach upon God.
 We glorify God by believing…Unbelief affronts God, it gives him the lie; “he who believes not, makes God a liar.” But faith brings glory to God; it sets its seal, that God is true. He who believes flies to God’s mercy and truth, as to an altar of refuge; he engarrisons himself in the promises, and trusts all he has with God.
 We glorify God, by being tender of his glory. God’s glory is as dear to him as the pupil of his eye. An sincere child weeps to see a disgrace done to his father. Psalm 69:9. “The reproaches of those who reproached you are fallen upon me.” When we hear God reproached, it is as if we were reproached; when God’s glory suffers, it is as if we suffered. This is to be tender of God’s glory.
 We glorify God by fruitfulness…It is not mere profession—but fruit which glorifies God. God expects to have his glory from us in this way. “Who plants a vineyard, and does not eat the fruit of it?” Trees in the forest may be barren—but trees in the garden are fruitful. We must bring forth the fruits of love and good works.
 We glorify God, by being contented in that state in which Providence has placed us. We give God the glory of his wisdom, when we rest satisfied with whatever portion he carves out to us…A good Christian argues thus: “It is God who has put me in this condition; he could have raised me higher, if he pleased—but that might have been a snare to me. He has done it in wisdom and love; therefore I will sit down satisfied with my condition.”
 We glorify God by working out our own salvation. God has twisted together, his glory and our good. We glorify him by promoting our own salvation. It is a glory to God to have multitudes of converts; his design of free grace takes effect, and God has the glory of his mercy; so that, while we are endeavoring our salvation, we are honoring God.
 We glorify God by living for God…The Mammonist lives for his money. The Epicure [lover of pleasure] lives for his belly. The design of a sinner’s life is to gratify lust—but we glorify God when we live for God. We live to God when we live to his service, and lay ourselves out wholly for God.
 We glorify God by walking cheerfully. It brings glory to God, when the world sees a Christian has that within him, which can make him cheerful in the worst times; which can enable him, with the nightingale, to sing with a thorn at his bosom. The people of God have ground for cheerfulness. They are justified and adopted, and this creates inward peace; it makes music within, whatever storms are without. If we consider what Christ has wrought for us by his blood, and wrought in us by his Spirit, it is a ground of great cheerfulness, and this cheerfulness glorifies God.
 We glorify God, by standing up for his truths. Much of God’s glory lies in his truth. God has entrusted us with his truth, as a master entrusts his servant with his purse to keep. We have not a richer jewel to trust God with—than our souls; nor has God a richer jewel to trust us with—than his truth.
 We glorify God, by praising him…Though nothing can add to God’s essential glory, yet praise exalts him in the eyes of others. When we praise God, we spread his fame and renown, we display the trophies of his excellency.
 We glorify God, by being zealous for his name…Zeal is a mixed affection, a compound of love and anger; it carries forth our love to God, and our anger against sin in an intense degree. Zeal is impatient of God’s dishonor; a Christian fired with zeal, takes a dishonor done to God, worse than an injury done to himself!
 We glorify God, when we have an eye to God in our natural and in our civil actions…We glorify God, when we have an eye to God in all our civil [buying and selling] and natural [eating and drinking] actions, and do nothing that may reflect any blemish on true religion.
 We glorify God by laboring to draw others to God…We should be both diamonds and magnets; diamonds for the luster of grace, and magnets for attractive virtue in drawing others to Christ.
 We glorify God in a high degree when we suffer for God, and seal the gospel with our blood…God’s glory shines in the ashes of his martyrs…They embraced torments as so many crowns. God grant we may thus glorify him—if he calls us to it. Many pray, “Let this cup of suffering pass away!” Few pray, “May your will be done!”
 We glorify God, when we give God the glory of all that we do…As the silkworm, when she weaves her curious work, hides herself under the silk, and is not seen; so when we have done anything praiseworthy, we must hide ourselves under the veil of humility, and transfer the glory of all we have done to God.
 We glorify God by a holy life…By our exact Bible-lives, we glorify God. Though the main work of true religion lies in the heart, yet our light must so shine that others may behold it.
