Some thoughts from this Morning’s Reading of Spurgeon:

We being finite beings cannot know the glory of God. However, we can get glimpses of it from creation and from God’s revelation of Himself. In His revelation we have the glory of God revealed in His names, His majesty, His power, His works, His Holiness. However, I think the most important revelation of His glory is of course, His express image, Jesus Christ.

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. (Col 1:15 NKJV)

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14 NKJV)

So I was wondering what are a few glimpses of God’s glory that I can see in/through/from Christ?

  • He is God, yet a servant (Phil 2:5-8)
  • He has contol over sickness (Mark 8:22-29)
  • He has control over creation and nature (see a list of His miracles)
  • Every knee will bow to Him as Lord (Phil 2:9-11)

Those are just a few, because…well the list is as infinite as is His glory! If you have never had the opportunity to take a detailed class in Christology, I strongly suggest it. To learn about Jesus Christ, is to learn of His glory. Here’s a free class on Christology. It is the most popular class on the Blue Letter Bible Institute, over 20,000 students have enrolled in the course.

Also, Happy Birthday Connor! I cannot believe you are 7 years old already! I pray that God will have His hand on you not only this next year, but your entire life!
