Today's Devotion

What is the glory of God? The writings of the apostle John tell us that the glory of God was His Son. That is what we read as we go through the writings of John and the gospel of John. John says, ?We beheld His glory, the glory of the only begotten of the Father, full of Grace and Truth?. The glory of God was in His Son. May this be a foundation for our inward lives. In all that we heard there are certain precious truths that need to be laid as a foundation in our lives. In the forthcoming days the Scriptures will open unto us in fresh ways if we closely hold on to this truth. Paul says in Eph 3:21, ?Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.? Paul says the church has to be a vessel for the glory of Jesus Christ. Though there are many statements from God?s Word that tell us about the glory of God, they do not really define and explain what the glory of God is. However, we do find one verse in the Bible that actually defines the glory of God. John 1:14 tells us, ?And the Word was made 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.? Beloved, the glory of God is the absolute satisfaction of His Divine nature. When God is able to see something that identifies with His own nature and all that is His then that something has the glory of God.
