Dear Anne, my friend whom I love in the Lord.
Greetings to you. I wonder if you have ever thought about the Glory of the Lord. I have collected some thoughts about Glory.
Scripture Reading: ‘Who is this King of Glory? The Commander of all of heaven’s armies!...’Psalm 24: 1 – 10. LB
Verse: Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others – the armies of heaven – praising God: “Glory to God in the highest heaven,” they sang,…’ Luke 2: 13 – 14. LB.
Glory.’ From glory to glory he’s changing me, changing me, changing me.’ These words are a line in a old chorus. I used to sing them with great gusto. I did believe the Lord was changing me but I felt it would be realized when I reached heaven. In the past
The line of another chorus comes to mind, ‘Heaven came down and Glory shone around.’ I believed that when the angels sang at Jesus birth, heaven did come down. The heavens were lit up and glory shone around. But it was only to announce Jesus birth.
I realize now heaven did come to earth in many ways at Jesus’ birth. The glory was Jesus, he is the glory. We don’t need to wait for the glory, or make ourselves worthy of the glory or prayer for a UFO kind of experience. When we have Jesus we have the glory. When we become believers of Jesus, we are filled with his glory. We then, are the Glory of God. We are filled with the Glory-man, Jesus. We need nothing more or less.
In Christ, I am being changed from Glory to Glory because Glory – the man Jesus, came down and shone all around. He never left, he lives in us.
Thought for the Day: ‘The blessing and the honour and the glory and the power belong to the one sitting on the throne, and to the Lamb forever and ever.’ Revelation 5: 13 LB
Prayer: Thank you Father for the Glory-man Jesus who dwells with in us. Grant us clearer revelation of this truth.
