Daily Devotional “God’s Glory In Christ”
March 05, 2023
“And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).
Christ displayed God’s glory on earth and will again when He comes back. After seeing His glory in Scripture, we should respond in worship and righteousness.
From eternity past Christ had the glory of God. He “is the radiance of [God’s] glory and the exact representation of His nature” (Hebrew. 1:3), and…
He prayed, “And now, glorify Thou Me together with Thyself, Father, with the glory which I ever had with Thee before the world was” (John 17:5).
Christ also displayed God’s glory on earth. Most often He looked like an ordinary man, but one night He appeared in great glory to Peter, James, and John (Luke 9:28-36).
“While He was praying, the appearance of His face became different, and His clothing became white and gleaming” (v. 29). Moses and Elijah came and spoke to Him, and the disciples “saw His glory” (v. 32).
When He comes again, He will come “on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory” (Matthew. 24:30), to the joy of His people and to the terror of those who reject Him. His glory will fill the whole earth (Numbers. 14:21), and all creation will worship Him.
What should be our response to God’s glory? Like the angels who sing, “Glory to God in the highest” (Luke 2:14), we should give Him praise.
Also, as we see His glory we should change: “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 from the Lord, the Spirit” (2 Corinthians. 3:18).
As we look at God, the Holy Spirit convicts us of sin and helps us grow and live righteous lives. As “children of God,” we “appear as lights in the world” (Philippians. 2:15).
The purpose of all creation is to glorify God. As a mirror reflects light, we are to reflect His glory to Him and to a sinful world.
Seek to live a holy life so this reflection shines as brightly as possible, and make it your desire to glorify Him in everything you do.
Thank God for the hope of glory we have as we wait for Christ’s return (Titus 2:13). Ask that your life would brightly reflect God’s glory today.
