Lent [day 28]… [Saturday, 12 March 2016]…

Some original research…

Last night, as I closed the sermon, I focused in on this phrase from Jesus in John 17.22: “The GLORY that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one…”

I had difficulty with the GLORY concept all week long…

So, I decided to look up every reference to GLORY in the Gospel of John — what a revelation Holy Spirit brought — YAY GOD!!!

Here are four thoughts…

First, GLORY points to the PERFECT UNITY of the Trinity — God lives and loves in perfect community as Abba, Jesus and Holy Spirit… This is WHO God is… If we want to know about “oneness” or “unity” — just focus on God as Trinity!

Second, GLORY reveals the PERFECT AGREEMENT within the Trinity — God as Abba, Jesus and Holy Spirit are passionately committed to the mission of our rescue — giving ZOE LIFE to us!!! This is WHAT God does!!! Each Person works TOGETHER to perfectly complement the Others in our rescue — no competition and no disunity…

Third, as God reveals his GLORY — it calls us to TRUST!!! When we encounter his beauty, power, authority, majesty, perfection, oneness, UNITY which gives birth to HOPE and love — our hearts are moved to TRUST!!!

Finally, God’s GLORY is FOREVER!!! God’s GLORY is ETERNAL — it never had a beginning and it will never have an end — it simply always has been, always is and always will be!!!

Lord, show us your GLORY!!!

Blessings!!!
