THE EXCELLENT GLORY OF JESUS CHRIST!
For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness exceeds much more in glory. For even what was made glorious had no glory in this respect, because of the glory that excels (2 Corinthians 3:9-10).
When you read the entire chapter of 2 Corinthians 3, you will discover that Apostle Paul made reference to the glory that Moses received at Mount Sinai. The glory was so strong and efficacious that the children of Israel could not even look at the face of Moses. Moses had to use a veil to cover his face whenever he comes down from the mountain to address the children of Israel. That was the glory of the Old Testament. The glory that faded away with time and it is temporary.
But when Jesus Christ came, He came with a greater, better and stronger glory than that of Moses and the Old Testament. Therefore, the glory of Jesus Christ is far more excellent than that of Moses and any of the Old Testament’s prophets. No wonder the Bible tells us in Haggai 2:9, “The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former…” The glory of the New Testament is more excellent than the glory of the Old Testament. It is the divine and permanent glory of God that exists forever through Jesus Christ our Lord.
We are fortunate and privilege to enjoy the excellent glory of Jesus Christ. The glory of Jesus Christ dwells in our spirits and gives us a better understanding of the divinity and essence of His. That is why Apostle Paul says, “To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27). The excellent glory of Jesus Christ is in you. It is the everlasting hope of a believer in Christ Jesus.
Daily Tip: You are fortunate and privilege to carry the excellent glory of Jesus Christ. Therefore, let the world see the hope of your glory. Shalom!
