EXPERIENCING THE AWESOME GLORY OF GOD!
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord (2 Corinthians 3:18).
God wants every Christian to experience His awesome glory in his life. The glory of God is awesome, great, efficacious and contagious in life. There is nothing in life that could be compared to it in all standards in life. The Bible says in the opening text that we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God wants him to experience the awesome glory of His in life. The awesome glory of God is indeed the full manifestations of His presence in the life of a Christian forever.
Even the three disciples of Jesus Christ; Peter, James and John could not withstand the awesome glory of God when Jesus Christ transfigured at the High Mountain before them. That is why the Bible says in Matthew 17:6, “And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their faces and were greatly afraid.” Therefore, the awesome glory of God in the life of a Christian drives away evil and reveals the awesomeness and fear of God in life. The Bible clearly stated that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 9:10). Therefore, the fear of God of course increases God’s glory in the life of a Christian forever.
Jesus Christ is the embodiment of the awesome glory of God in the life of a Christian. Indeed, a life without Jesus Christ can never experience the awesome glory of God. 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.” In fact, the awesome glory of God is indeed a great mystery to the unbelievers but Christ’s riches to the believers in life. It is the awesome glory of God that brings eternal hope of glory to a Christian’s life. A life that is devoid of the awesome glory of God is indeed a life that is dead and redundant forever.
Daily Tip: Jesus Christ in the life of a Christian is the awesome glory of God in a Christian’s life and ministry forever. Shalom!
