Glory- The Substance of Transformation!
Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
Rom 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God!
Rom 8:29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.
Ex 33:18 Then Moses said, “Please, show me Your glory!”
Ex 33:19 And God said, “I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the Name of the Lord before you; for I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show compassion (lovingkindness) on whom I will show compassion.”
One of the most intriguing verse in the Bible is Ex 33:18 where Moses said to God, “Please, show me your glory!” That was one of the boldest statements uttered by a man because if God showed His full glory to Moses, he would have died! No unredeemed man can see His glory and live! But there was something in the relationship between Moses and God that had prompted the former to dare to make this billion dollar request! Moses had become a friend of God!
Most Christians feel like God is someone who will say something and whatever he ordered, we must do! For immature Christians, that could work or at least prevent them from trouble! But God desires to walk with us as Enoch did as our Father and our Friend! It is His good intention to want to show us His glory because when we see His glory, we will never remain the same! The Glory of God is the substance of transformation! You cannot get enough of it! It also represents all the goodness, graciousness and kindness of God to us as was revealed to Moses! Get a glimpse of His glory today, jump into the river of His glory and let Him transform you. Amen.
