“Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified” – Romans 8:30
LIGHT FOR NOW: We have been glorified in Christ.
Jesus Christ is the expression of God’s glory; He is the express image of His person (Hebrews 1:3). As believers in Christ, united in an inseparable union; we also have been glorified in Christ. Hear Jesus in John chapter 17 verse 22, He says, “And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one”. The born again man is the fruit of the suffering of Christ. The scriptures talked about the glory that should follow the suffering of Christ. We are that glory. We are the joy that He saw ahead that made Him to endure and despise the shame of the cross (Hebrews 12:2). Therefore, for the born again man, there is no more shame because Jesus already bore the shame. He paid the price for us to live the glorious life. Everything required for your success in life has already been paid for. Christ died so that we could live a life of honour, dignity and excellence.
The good news is that it did not end with His vicarious death and stay in the grave. He rose triumphantly back to life on the third day. Just as death could not hold Him captive, today, nothing can hinder your glorious life in Him. If you couldn’t walk, rise up and walk! Walk out of the sickness, walk out of every ugly situation around you for the glory has come. Christ in you is the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27). This is the Gospel of Jesus Christ! He brought us victory, success, health and prosperity. He has brought us into His glory and ordained us to manifest the same on this earth. Hear what the Bible says in 1 Peter chapter 2 verse 9. It reads, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light”. Go out there and shine the glorious light of the gospel of Christ. You are the walking glory of God. Praise the Lord!!!
INSTRUCTION: Show forth the glory of God that you are.
PRAYER: I am light in this dark world. I will let my light so shine and draw men to God via the gospel of His Grace, in Jesus Name. Amen.
QUOTE: You are the walking glory of God.
