JESUS IS THE EXPRESSION OF GOD’S GLORY!
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).
Jesus Christ is the expression of God’s glory in the life of a Christian. Jesus Christ is the express image of God, while a Christian is the express image of Jesus Christ. The Bible says in the opening text that 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. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that Jesus Christ is the expression of God’s glory in the life of a Christian. The awesome glory of God resides in the Person of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior forever.
The awesome glory of God is fully residing and tabernacle in Jesus Christ who is the express image and manifestation of God. That is why the Bible says in John 1:14, “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.” Therefore, the express glory of God the Father which is found in the deity of Jesus Christ is fully residing in the life of a Christian. The expression of God’s glory which is Jesus Christ is full of grace and truth. A life that is indeed devoid of Jesus Christ will be a life that lacks grace and truth forever.
Jesus Christ who is the expression of God’s glory is the express image and manifestation of the Father. That is the reason why the Bible says in Hebrews 1:3, “Who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.” In fact, Jesus Christ is the brightness of God’s glory and the express image and manifestation of the Father in the life of a believer. The expression of God’s glory is in Christ Jesus forever.
Daily Tip: Every Christian should take note of the fact that Jesus Christ is the brightness of God’s glory and the express image and manifestation of the Father forever. Shalom!
