Random thoughts on God's Glory

Glory = the outward shining of the inward presence of God.

The book of Hebrews tells us that Jesus is the exact replication of God. And Jesus told his disciples that if they’ve seen Him, they have seen the Father.

R. Kirby Godsey in his book “When We Talk About God…Let’s Be Honest” writes, “God is in the heart and soul of our being, and we cannot know ourselves fully until we know God. God is present in us, and in Christ we see how God’s presence in a person redefines the character of being a person.”

The human job description can be reduced to one phrase; “Reflect God’s Glory.”

God lets you excel so you can make Him known. Never forget the source and purpose of your success. (1 Chronicles 29:12) Give God the Glory!

Hi Tig,

What great news! I think that prisons are so important to reach. Sometimes it takes a lot for God to get our attention! What is it they say? Sometimes you have to hit bottom so that the only place you have to look up is up?

Blessings on your work for God!
Nancy
