Daily Devotional “The Joy of Glorification”
February 15, 2023
God will perfect His work in you “until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians. 1 :6).
Someday God will glorify and reward every believer.
For Christians there’s an element of truth to the bumper sticker that reads, “Please be patient, God isn’t finished with me yet.”
We aren’t what we used to be, but there’s much to be done to make us all He wants us to be.
Yet God’s work within us is so sure and so powerful, Scripture guarantees its completion.
Pondering that guarantee led Bible expositor Meyer to write, “We go into the artist’s studio and find there unfinished pictures covering large canvas, and suggesting great designs,.
But which have been left, either because the genius was not competent to complete the work, or because paralysis laid the hand low in death; but as we go into God’s great workshop we find nothing that bears the mark of haste or insufficiency of power to finish, and we are sure that the work which His grace has begun, the arm of His strength will complete”
The completion of God’s work in you will come at a future point in time that Paul calls “the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians. 1:6).
Scripture also speaks of “the day of the Lord,” which is the time of God’s judgment on unbelievers, but “the day of Christ Jesus” refers to when believers will be fully glorified then rewarded for their faithful service (. 1 Corinthians. 3:10-15).
All your earthly cares will be gone and God’s promise to keep you from stumbling and make you stand in His presence blameless with great joy will be fully realized (Jude 24).
Concentrating on what is wrong in your life might depress you, but focusing on the glorious day of Christ should excite you.
Don’t be unduly concerned about what you are right now. Look ahead to what you will become by God’s grace.
•Reflect on the joy that is yours because you belong to an all-powerful God who is working mightily in you. Express your joy and praise to Him.
•Read 1 Chronicles 29:11-13 as a prayer of praise to God.
