The Hope of Glory

Posted on Posted in Covenant, Potential, Relationship


 

      Why does that glory …
      so often seem so far away?

God gave us a Saviour,
… so if we receive Him as our Saviour,
and make Him Lord of our lives,
… we are saved!
As Jesus Himself confirmed,

      I have come that they may have life,
      and that they may have it more abundantly.
      John 10:10

Yet too often this new life in Christ seems all but abundant!

      ‘I thought that Christ in me was the end of the problems,
      … but nothing much has changed in my life,
      … everything still seems to be the same!’

However Scripture tells us that,

      To them God willed to make known what are the
      riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles:
      which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
      Col. 1.27

Christ in us is the potential, the hope of glory,
… but for that potential to become a reality in my life,
I have to live that potential that is in Christ!

      for in Him we live and move and have our being,
      Acts 17:28

As I make Him Lord in my life, and hear Him for my life,
… that potential that is in Him,
will also become the potential and reality in my life!

      Therefore simply do what Jesus told us to do,

      If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you,
      you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
      John 15:7
