THE EXCELLENT GLORY
(You’re The Very Effulgence Of God’s Glory)
TO THE BIBLE Romans 8:30
“Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.”
Jesus is truly amazing and all-powerful. And like the book of Hebrews tells us about those who had the possibility of deliverance from death but rejected it, that they might have a greater glory (Hebrews 11:35), Jesus accepted the death on the cross. He laid down His glory, and suffered for us.
The Bible says He gave up everything for our sake (Philippians 2:7 CEV). Today in heaven, He’s crowned with all glory and majesty. He’s the glorified Christ. Now, 1 John 4:17 tells us something profound. It says, “…as He (the glorified Jesus) is, so are we in this world.” It doesn’t say, “…as he was, so are we.” We’re as He is NOW!
He’s the second and last Adam, because He heads the new creation of which we’re a part. Hallelujah! So, you’re not from the first Adam; you can’t be traced to him. When you’re in Christ, there’re no records that trace you to the first Adam, because the Bible says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
We’re partakers, as well as bearers, of His glory. Jesus gave us the same glory that the Father gave to Him: “And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one” (John 17:22).
Today, you have become the very effulgence of God’s glory, just as Jesus is. The Bible says, “…He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”” (2 Peter 1:17). Get to know about the invaluable treasure God has deposited within you. He’s given you not just His life, His peace and His righteousness; He’s also given you His excellent glory.
Colossians 1:26-27; 1 Peter 1:10-11; 2 Corinthians 3:18
Just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so do I live a new life of dominion over sickness, disease, infirmity, poverty, and the devil. I’m seated together with Christ in heavenly places, where I reign and rule with Him. Hallelujah!
