DAY 27 THURSDAY: AUGUST 2020

LET CHRIST’S GLORY BE REVEALED IN YOU!

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 glory of Jesus Christ in the life of a Christian is the hope a Christian has in life. Without the glory of Jesus Christ in the life of a Christian, his hope in life becomes totally dead and useless. 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 he is supposed to constantly reveal the glory of Jesus Christ in his life always. A Christian carries the glory of Jesus Christ in his life as a mark of identification. Indeed, the hope of a Christian is absolutely hidden in Jesus Christ’s glory in life forever.

The ministry of Moses is referred to as the ministry of condemnation, but yet the Bible recorded that it carried glory in life. How much more the ministry of Jesus Christ which is referred to as the ministry of righteousness in life? That is why the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 3:9, “For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness exceeds much more in glory.” Therefore, a Christian is forever attached to the ministry of righteousness which is indeed the ministry of Jesus Christ in life. The glory of Jesus Christ in a Christian’s life is awesome and incomparable in life forever.

The glory of Jesus Christ in a Christian’s life is a mark of identification and eternal protection in life. That is the reason why Apostle Paul said in Galatians 6:17 thus, “From now on let no one trouble me, for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.” In fact, a Christian can never be destroyed in life because he carried the marks of Jesus Christ in his body which is his eternal sealed in life. Every Christian should take note of the fact that the glory of Jesus Christ in his life is the mark of identification and eternal protection in life. Therefore, a Christian is hereby admonished to be bold and courageous in the Lord forever.

Daily Tip: The glory of Jesus Christ in the life of a Christian is indeed the mark of identification and eternal protection in his life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body (2 Corinthians 4:10).
