Read Today’s Rhapsody of Realities June 19 2023 Written by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
Today’s Topic: YOU’RE HIS GLORY
- Today’s devotional highlights the profound truth of our identity in God. As believers, we are the reflection of God’s glory, made manifest through Jesus Christ. As we continually behold the Word of God, we are transformed into His image, radiating His glory in ever-increasing splendor.
Today’s Message For Rhapsody of Realities
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him (Ephesians 1:17).
In his beautiful prayer for the Ephesian church, the Apostle Paul referred to our heavenly Father as the “Father of glory” That’s quite instructive. He isn’t saying that God is a “glorious Father,” but that He’s the Father of glory. It tells you who you are; you are “Glory!” That’s your Name.
If a man is called the father of John, then it means he has a son called John. If God is the Father of Glory, and you’re His son (1 John 3:1), then your name is “Glory!” You might say, “Pastor Chris, thats just a conjecture”; no!
Read Yesterday’s Devotional
What is Jesus called? Hebrews 1:3 says He’s the brightness of God’s glory, and the express image of His person. Jesus is the effulgence of God’s glory; He’s the manifestation of the glory of God. Jesus is the glory of God encapsulated in a body. And the Bible says in 1 John 4:17 that as He is, so are we in this world.
Making us His glory is part of what He came to do. Hebrews 2:10 says, “For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all it things, in bringing many sons unto glory..” Hallelujah! Then 2 Corinthians 3:18 (AMPC) tells something remarkable.
It says, “And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we| continued to behold [in the Word of Godl as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendour..” Observe that it says the Word of God is mirror, just as James also tells us in James 1:23.
But here’s the most beautiful part: When you look in a mirror, you see yourself. Now, 2 Corinthians 3:18 says when you look in the mirror of God, you see the glory of God. How can you see the glory of God in the mirror, if you are not the glory of God? Every good mirror reflects or projects the image before it. If your reflection is called the glory of God when you look into the mirror of God (the Word of God), then you are the glory of God. Praise God!
The life and glory of God are manifested in and through me. I saturate and impact my world with the Lorď’s goodness, kindness, beauty and grace. The glory that I see when I look into the mirror -the Word-is who I am. Hallelujah!
30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
5 Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the Lord thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.
22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
