Jesus had been teaching about glorifying God. How to do that?  By giving up our will and letting God do God’s will. By letting go of our life, like Jesus would on the cross – like a flower dies and goes to seed in order to bring forth new life.

God responds to Jesus’ prayer to glorify God’s name, by speaking “from heaven” so that people wondered if they heard thunder. God said, “I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again.”

By dying, Jesus glorified God and brought thousands of believers to God. M.Thomas Thangaraj, the devotional writer, states that God’s glory is revealed when communities of peace and justice emerge. He refers to a new venue of obedience when we offer ourselves as God’s instruments of peace.
