We have to have a vision of who God is, what His Glory is. Think how glorious it must have been in the Garden of Eden when God fellow-shipped with man. Then man was put out of Eden and generation after generation lost touch with the reality and the Vision of God. Revivals change people who receive a personal understanding of his glory.
What is the glory of the Lord? In the Old Testament it appears as the Weightiness of His Presence. In the New Testament God's Glory is revealed in the character of Jesus and the Comforter. The enemy uses a major weapon to keep us from seeing and sharing God's Glory -- that is our words. If our words don't carry 'life' (see the message from September 9) then we are not living as God wants; we are not sharing the character of Jesus with others.
Each day I have to remember--
"It's All About You"
Ephesians 4:29-30 (NIV)
29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
I thank God for allowing me to recognize His Glory in His Presence during worship. For me, I see His Glory through those who share His Word, His Love, His Blessings and His Peace. I also give thanks that, as the song says: 'I will share eternity with You'
