IT’S THE SAME GLORY (You’ve Got The Same Honour And Glory As Jesus Does)
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;
TO THE BIBLE
John 17:22 “And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one.”
Being born again, you’re not an insignificant speck in the dust; you have honour and glory in Christ. This glory refers to the perfections of beauty, the excellence of divinity and its expressions, and God’s honour, etc. Jesus is the express image of God’s person, the brightness, effulgence (outshining) of the glory of God.
The Bible says God gave Him His excellent glory (Hebrews 1:3). Now, here’s the most remarkable part: Just before He was crucified, He prayed a very touching prayer to the Father on our behalf. He said: “And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one” (John 17:22). He gave us the same glory the Father gave Him so that we’d be one with Him and the Father, just as He and the Father are one
Today, you have the glory of God the Father, the same glory He gave to Jesus. You may be thinking right now, “How could I, with the past that I have had, have the glory of God?” Well, now that you’re born again, you do because you’re a new creation in Christ and your past no longer exists! The Bible says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus” (Romans 3:23-24).
Before the Lord Jesus came, everybody was labelled a sinner. He, however, dealt with the problem of sin once and for all. Therefore, if because of sin, we came short of the glory of God, now that the problem has been dealt with, we’re no longer short of the glory of God. We’re His glorified ones, according to Romans 8:30: “Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.” Hallelujah!
2 Corinthians 3:10-11 AMPC; Romans 8:30 GNB; Isaiah 60:1-2
I’m the glory of God! I exude and manifest righteousness, excellence and perfection today and always. My life is one of everincreasing glory. The Holy Spirit—the Spirit of glory—lives in me in His fullness. Through the study and meditation on the Word, I’m constantly transfigured from glory to glory. Praise God!
