TO BE BORN INTO GOD’S GLORY!
And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night. He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire by night from before the people (Exodus 13:21-22).
A Christian is born into God’s glory in life. God’s glory is the awesome presence of God that is beyond man’s knowledge and comprehension in life. The Bible says in the opening text that the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night. He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire by night from before the people. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that he had been born into God’s glory, hence, God’s presence in life. The glory of God is the awesome presence of God in life forever.
When the children of Israel came out of Egypt and crossed the Red Sea into the wilderness; they were baptized into Moses. They all ate from the same spiritual food and drank from the same spiritual water. The Bible recorded that the Rock which was their source of water was actually Christ Jesus (1 Corinthians 10:1-4). God jealously guided the Israelites by the pillar of cloud during the day and the pillar of fire during the night. Therefore, anyone that is truly born into the glory of God is indeed covered by God in life. Hence, the glory of God is also the seal of covering for a Christian in life forever.
Every Christian had been born into God’s glory, and that glory is Christ Jesus our Lord in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Colossians 1:27, “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.” Jesus Christ is indeed our glory and our hope in life. That is why His Name is a strong tower where the righteous run into for their salvation in life (Proverbs 18:10). In fact, the hope and glory of a Christian is found and hidden in Jesus Christ who is our Savior and Lord in life. A Christian that is devoid of the glory of God becomes spiritually naked in life forever.
Daily Tip: Every Christian had been born into God’s glory which is Christ Jesus, our only hope of salvation and deliverance in life forever. Shalom!
Golden Text: 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).
