Have you ever wondered how God gets glory? Glory is something revealed in us, through God. Glory comes out of difficult times, from times that are traumatic, overwhelming in nature.
God wants to show us His glory, per the Holy Scriptures. For us to experience His glory, we have to go through something to get to it; it is revealed only at that moment when there’s no other way possible. God rushes in to rescue, deliver, pull out, pull through. I appreciate God’s glory.
Romans 8:18 NIV | New International Version
I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
Romans 8:17 NLT | New Living Translation
And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.
1 Peter 4:13 NIV | New International Version
But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.
