Jesus’s Ultimate Glory

via TJC


And Jesus is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high - Hebrews 1:3


John 13:31-32, 17:5

Therefore when Judas had gone out, Jesus said, “Now is the Son of Man glorified, and God is glorified in Him; if God is glorified in Him, God will also glorify Him in Himself, and will glorify Him immediately. Now, Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.


This is the most difficult DBO this author has encountered! How does one succinctly describe Jesus's ultimate glory? The four Gospels, written by four different disciples, denote numerous ways Jesus is glorified! Which of these is the ultimate Glory? Paul seems to simplify the answer with "whatever you do, do all to the glory of God," and Jesus surely exemplified that. But what is Jesus’s ultimate Glory? In everything Jesus did, He did so for the Glory of His Father. To me, this would illustrate the ultimate Glory of Jesus! His LIFE glorified the Father! He then replicates the pattern by empowering those of us who embrace being His disciples with the fruit and then some!

Jesus commands His disciples to proclaim ‘‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ We are to be ‘advocates’ for His Glory. Jesus is Glorified when we replicate how He Glorified the Father. Truly, truly I say to you, the one who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will also do; and greater works than these he will do; because I am going to the Father. Freely you received, freely give.’

 

Daily Battle Order:

Start incrementally. Practice the presence of God. Anticipate hearing Him. When you encounter someone in need of healing, use your voice and pray with expectation…knowing that this glorifies the Father and accomplishes Jesus’s desires to glorify the Father and do ‘greater’ works through you.  Set aside insecurities, for you too were ultimately made to glorify your Father. At the same time, keep your ego in check, as God resists the proud!
