We talk about a glorious victory,
but what is glory or glorious all about?
No, it is not about something you did or achieved,
… in fact, it has nothing to do with us.
The glory is the manifest presence of God Himself,
… the glory is not about us or what we do.
As Paul wrote to the church in Colossae
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.
Colossians 1 27
But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery,
the hidden wisdom
which God ordained before the ages for our glory,
which none of the rulers of this age knew;
for had they known,
they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
1 Corinthians 2 7-8
And therefore, in Him, in the Lord of Glory
… we all, with unveiled face,
beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord,
are being transformed
into the same image from glory to glory,
just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3 18
And the temple was filled with smoke
from the glory of God, and from his power
Revelation 15 8
