"The whole earth is filled with His glory."
God's glory only became a reality
in our world
when God's son was born at Bethlehem.
Everything Jesus did and said
during his three years of earthly ministry
was bathed in God's glory.
Jesus in his priestly prayer prayed
‘I brought glory to you here on earth.’
At the point of Jesus' death,
for three hours darkness filled the earth.
On Sunday God's glory returned
in the resurrected presence of Jesus.
Quite often the life God has planned for us
is bathed in his glory,
but we do not recognise it as such.
Jesus' prayer for us is that we
'can see all the glory
you have given me,
because you loved me.'
This is unbelievable for us yet true.
