DAY 18 MONDAY: MAY 2020

THE EXPRESSION OF HIS GLORY IN LIFE!

Who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the world of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high (Hebrews 1:3).

Jesus Christ is the expression of God’s glory; while Christians are the expression of Jesus Christ’s glory on earth in life. A Christian should take note of the fact that he is Jesus Christ’s glory in life. In the opening text, the Bible says that who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the world of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that he is indeed the expression of Jesus Christ’s glory on the surface of the earth in life forever.

Jesus Christ gave the glory of God to all Christians in life. In fact, that glory is the bond of Christianity in life. That is why the Bible says in John 17:22, “And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one.” Therefore, the express glory of God is hidden in Jesus Christ; while the express glory of Christ is hidden in the life of a Christian. Every Christian is a carrier and dispenser of the glory of Christ Jesus in life. The glory of Jesus Christ in the life of a Christian is the hope of God in his life (Colossians 1:27). Indeed, without the expression of His glory in the life of a Christian, he is absolutely bound to live a life of shame and bondage forever.

As a Christian, God expects your life to shine forth into greater manifestations in life. Of course, you are the expression of Jesus Christ’s glory to the world in life. Therefore, a Christian’s life is expected to bear witness and testify of the goodness of God in the land of the living in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Isaiah 60:1, “Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.” In fact, every Christian is indeed expected to reflect the glory of God through his life and character for all to see in life. The glory of God upon the life of a Christian through the expression of Jesus Christ is the seal of coverage and eternal hope of a believer in life. Therefore, every Christian is the express image of Jesus Christ’s glory for the world to see in life forever.

Daily Tip: Every Christian is the expression of Jesus Christ’s glory; therefore, arise and shine for the light of God is risen upon him in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16).
