YOU ARE HIS GLORY, FULL OF HIS GLORY AND GLORIFIED
I have given them the glory you gave me, so that they may be one just as we are one.
John 17:22 (NLT)
One of the revealed mysteries that have been kept hidden for generations past is that God has GIVEN and MADE the New Creation his GLORY (Colosians1:25-27).
This divine truth is important in the body of Christ and Gods desire is for the church to walk in the full conciousness of this reality. This was once a desire in God’s heart and has finally come to pass. It was once a secret but has been revealed. This is breaking news, the message that should trend. No wonder he calls us the CHOSEN GENERATION. We are the Generation that has been given the opportunity to KNOW, PREACH and WALK in the light of this secret - “CHRIST IN YOU”.
Furthermore, the Apostle Paul says, “God has given me the responsibility of serving his church by proclaiming his entire message to you. This message was kept secret for centuries and generations past, but now it has been revealed to God’s people. For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.”
Colossians 1:25-27 NLT
From the above scripture we see that not only did God give us his glory but he has also made us his glory. He has given us the same glory that he has and then made us his glory. He has virtually made us partakers of his glory in all it's totality and fullness. Glory to God!
Moreover the bible says in (2 Peter 1:3) that; “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue.”
This life of glory is a calling, and amazingly so we have been called to live this life. You see, when you said YES to Jesus you inevitably were saying YES to the life of glory and excellence. As a Christian, you were born into glory. The Lord Jesus in (John 17:22) prayed to God and said; “…the glory which thou gavest me I have given them…” He was talking about us (the church). Jesus has given to us the glory the Father gave to Him. We have received it already. How remarkable! Hallelujah.
The Apostle Paul also said we have been glorified. Question is what does it mean to be glorified? The book of (Romans 8:30 AMP) declares, "... And those whom He justified, He also glorified [raising them to a heavenly dignity and condition or state of being]." To be glorified means we have been raised to a heavenly dignity and condition or state of being. This is something to shout about! YOU ARE HEAVENLY!!
Furthermore, in the book of (Colossians 1:27 (NLT) the Apostle Paul says,
"To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory."
The Spirit of God through the Apostle Paul reveals an important mystery that has been hidden for many generations about Christianity and has now been revealed to the church in the verse above. He says, “Christ in you, the hope of glory. “ To have the vital knowledge, and live with the consciousness that Christ lives in you, is one of the greatest things that could ever happen to you as a Christian. As long as Christ lives in you, you cannot but live a glorious life. It is in fact a solution to all the problems, struggles and sufferings in life.
I live and walk in glory, victory and prosperity everyday. My life is beautiful and glorious through the Holy Spirit who lives in me
